Re: Florida energy bills and Progress Energy assistance

I need help with paying my Progress Energy light bill and moving assistance. I was injured at work on 4/3/12, so I got behind, and my landlord is evicting me. I found somewhere else to stay, but I can't move in until I pay the deposit, and the lights will be off in my current residence later today.
