Looks like you live in California. Try calling your utility company and ask them about their financial assistance programs. Most utility companies can offer grants, weatherization, and more options and services. While the government doesn't prevent a shut off for kids, many the utility company has a program you can use.

Government electric bills

Post by JeffObrien » Wed May 18, 2011 9:08 pm

I am trying to get help for my 66 year old mother, help with electric bil. she has never needed assistance before and would usually be the giving. Unfortunately my stepdad , her husband left her after 36 years of marriage, he gave no warning and is giving no financial help and all she has is her social security from government which means she can not pay all her bills. If anyone knows where to get help please let us know

If she is that age there are laws, rules, and regulations that protect her from disconnection. That is sad to hear the husband left after those years.
Each state has certain laws to protect senior citizens from disconnections and offer financial aid. A fairly extensive listing of the laws by state is here.
Also sue for alimony. She may be entitled.

Most states do have laws that protect kids and young ones and ensure their families have power for their needs. Laws are in place to protect kids, and a listing of state utility disconnection laws can be found here.

For example, if someone has a medical condition your state may say you need to have power, and the company can't just disconnect the utilities. Sue your landlord and power company if need to...always an option.

Hello, I'm contacting you on information about getting help on my gas bill from a government program.
I wanted to know more about it. Recently my husband has become very ill. He had a heart attack with other medical problems and I have taken on the role of the main income in the household until he gets totally on he's feet. We also have a 5 year old child so juggling all these bills my paycheck doesn't cover all utility. I want to know how this government system works and would like to have more information.
Please contact me.
It will be much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Dear Sir: I am in a financial crisis. I need help. My mobile home went up for auction by the town and someone put a bid on it, all because I didn't pay my property taxes for a few years. (Which I know was a dumb/stupid thing to do).
I've been there 15 years and I love. It there. It’s my home. Could you please check out if there are government, state, federal or any financial help I can get? I am on dialysis and disabled and on disability but I need help. Can you help me please I have until September 23, 2015 to pay $3600 or I will lose my home. Please see if you can guide me or help me with this difficult situation before I lose my home before it’s too late. (I don't have anywhere else to go). Thank you!
