I think Wilmington North Carolina has Progress Energy? Or is it Duke?
Regardless, here is a listing of various energy and utility programs in North Carolina. Link is http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/new ... ance_.html
Try calling the New Hanover County Salvation Army at ((910) 762-7354)
Another place to try is the A.M.E.Z. Housing Community Development Corporation ((910) 815-3826). While her benefits may be getting low, you just need to keep calling different agencies, so if they can give you more funding or see if something else is available.

I am a nurse and know a family that has had their electric turned off because they have no money to pay the electric bill, the bill totals $4177.95. The mother of the home gets only about $1000.00 monthly income and tries to support her son, daughter, grandchild and son-in-law. None of them have been able to get work due to transportation. The mother finally got a car through a subprime lender but is costing her $350.00 for car payment (the car has over 100,000 miles on it) and $208.00 for the insurance and she had to pay them $900.00 up front which took her two months to do. Which leaves little money to pay the electric bill. Is there any help I can help her with? This is for Winston Salem North Carolina.

I have no idea where to turn. I have been given a shut off notice by consumers energy and they will not work with me at all. I don't know what to do. I have called every organization and I can't get through I have tried for over 10 hours and no response back. Please help me I am a disabled woman with a disabled 4 year old son and my family size is 4, 2 adults and 2 children. Consumers is threatening to shut my power off like in a day or so I guess from what I am being told. I need help. I have prayed so much and things just aren't being answered. So I am praying now that this is the one that will work out for me if not my family and I will be without. My husband just had surgery and when he comes home she needs to have things to help her that require power, my daughter requires a breathing treatment every 2 hours do to severe asthma I am lost right now and all I want to do is cry and I'm a grown woman. Please help me in getting in contact with the right people.
