Naomi Johnson

Naomi Johnson works at FEMA where she manages grants to fire departments across the county that pay salaries and benefits for federally funded firefighters as well as life-saving equipment. Since she is on furlough, grant funds are not getting distributed to these fire departments. She is the primary caregiver for her elderly mother and pays several of her bills. The shutdown has made it difficult to support both herself and her mother.
