Who Energy Share Helps

A man lost his home to fire.  When he moved into a mobile home temporarily, the electric bill doubled from the house he had lost.  He was not only dealing with losing his house and most of his belongings, but also had to try to find the money to pay the increased electric bill.  He couldn’t keep up with it, so applied for and received Energy Share assistance.

A single woman working a seasonal job ran out of unemployment, started a new job, and had to quit shortly thereafter due to an old injury re-surfacing, along with multiple health issues.  To top it all off, her car died and she simply could not keep up on all her bills.  Energy Share helped keep her heat on until she could regain some better financial standing.
