£150 needed for rent arrears

This gentleman is dependent on benefits. He has been unemployed for four years and, despite every effort, has been unable to secure employment. He has accumulated massive rent arrears and has had a letter advising him that he is going to be taken to court, and is at risk of being made homeless. We have accessed support from Christians Against Poverty, but some help to clear a small amount of these arrears would be so valuable to him. His housing officer has agreed to put the threatened proceedings on hold if we could clear this small part of the money he owes.
