Barbara Shields sits with caseworker Virginia Martinez, at the Salvation Army of Collier County, hoping to receive assistance with her electric bill. Shields has been out of work for over a year since losing her son to leukemia. Her lights are set to be shut off at midnight, and since Shields is already in section 8 housing, Florida law states that she is not eligible for any additional financial assistance. In October, the Salvation Army of Collier County assisted more people than it has during any month in its history. Greg Kahn/Staff
