Maxine Hitch has found herself in tough spots before.
Disabled and unable to work, Hitch said times are often tight. Though her four children are now grown and living on their own, Hitch has been raising her great-great-grandson Jonathan, 4, since he was 5 months old.
"I got in hard spots, but I always try to pay my bills first."
It could be a struggle, Hitch said, but, thanks to Lake Cumberland Community Action, she gets by.
