A single mom living in a rural area was having a hard enough time finding work. Things went from bad to horrible when she had to have a lower leg amputated after experiencing continuing issues with it that were unresolvable without the amputation. She needed help keeping the heat on for her and her child. Thank you for your donations that make it possible for people in situations like this to keep their homes warm.
An elderly man, not in great health but working as much as he could, was unable to keep up on his utility bill. His wife had severe health problems and needed major surgery. On a fixed income, they applied for and received assistance through Energy Share.
A veteran and his family tried hard to make regular payments on their home energy bill but ran into a variety of barriers, including a decrease in income with a resulting high balance on their utility account. They were working towards catching up when the Mom was diagnosed with cancer, which meant a further reduction of income and added medical costs. Energy Share helped this family gain traction and keep their heat and lights on while going through a very difficult season in life.
