Budget cuts hurt disabled

CLARKSTON, WA - Quality Behavioral Health said up to 60 Asotin County residents relied on Washington State's Disability Lifeline cash program for rent and utilities. The program was cut November first.

"A lot of these people are becoming homeless, being evicted, having to couch surf," said Housing Program Manager Valerie Johnson. "We just don't want to see anymore homeless people in Asotin County."

Johnson said, through a grant, rental assistance is still available for Washington residents hurt by that cut. However, only a handful of those affected have sought help through QBH. To find out if you qualify, just stop by their Clarkston office at 900 7th Street and apply. Johnson said within minutes you'll find out if you're approved.
