-Elicia: Originally thought that she was going to get help from Texas Workforce Commission. Unemployed, desperately looking for work. Asking instead for rent abatement because she's had to go to the commons bathroom pretty much every time, she's had to use the gym shower. Sanitation issues qualify for rent abatement according to fair housing laws. Asking not to pay rent for August ($~293)+Ramona: Originally thought that she was going to get help from Texas Workforce Commission. Unemployed, desperately looking for work.

-Paul: The shower down here was available. There'​s a separate financial issue, that Elicia ​moved from a lower-rent lease (3-people unit) to a higher-rent (2-person) one, so she has more deposit to pay in. Elicia ​moved again part way through the month, so she had access to a working bathroom for at least part of the month.+Paul: The shower down here was available.
