Making Ends Meet: Utility Assistance Programs

Imagine you are a single parent. You’re trying to raise your children and maintain a home on your own. You’re working toward a college degree to improve the outlook for your family. You find yourself having to choose between keeping the heat on and feeding your kids. What would you do?

ACSET Community Action Agency is here to help people get through the tough times. For example, when Shanda came to us for help, our utility assistance program was able to keep the heat, water and electricity on for her family.

“Each time I found myself in a position where I was unable to pay these bills due to a decrease in income, unexpected car repairs, [and] increased insurance premiums, the ASCET program was there for my family…  As a single parent and college student I am grateful for the support that the ACSET program provided, so that my family could weather the struggling times we faced…”
