Celebrating 8 Years

Nearly everyone at one time or another goes through it. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Things happen. There is a huge difference between the mendicant that makes a career of preying on the innocent for money and the hardworking man or woman who probably has spent a lifetime building a home and a life only to fall into debt by circumstance. Don't let anyone humiliate you about asking for help when you need it. This holds especially true for families with children. You do what you need to do. How many of us would give to the less fortunate in a time of need? Most of us wouldn't hesitate!

That being said, let's look at some of our options to keep the lights on!

Number one stop: The Department of Human Services

They can tell you if you qualify for utility assistance or energy assistance, food stamps, Medicaid and TANF, temporary assistance for needy families.

Try your local church.

They usually have funds to help families that are struggling to make ends meet.

 Check the back of your light bill.

They should have a phone number to call if you need help. They will also be able to provide you with a list of agencies that may be able to help pay your light bill.
