We also assist our Clients with utility bills if they are in danger of disconnection. Clients must contact the utility and set up a budget, payment, or collection plan prior to requesting assistance from us. See the links below or check your utility bill for financial help information.
We expect that you will also seek other assistance that is available, such as SNAP, SMOC or other outside sources.
