A visit with the social worker

I had an appointment with a social worker today. The law requires that anyone being faced with eviction proceedings must be counseled by a social worker. She was very nice. She told me about rent assistance (aide au logement), for which I can apply to the Caisse des allocations familiales—the welfare board, in other words. So I shall gather all the papers necessary for that and apply. She talked about some other stuff, too, but I quickly became confused by all the various welfare plans available. I don't know if I'll qualify for any of them, but if she can find something to help, that would be great. She will also prepare a statement that she will give to the court for my hearing.
