Use the main site to find hundreds of places to call for help with power bills and other aid. For example, this resource you can use to read about ways to get help with electric bills in South Carolina. Like the major SC utility company, Duke Power, runs the Share the Warmth assistance program for the low income.

Well I doubt you can get help for cable bills. Go to basic cable. As far as electricity, power, and light bills, look into LIHEAP program. This can provide emergency aid to stop a disconnection, offer access to non-profits, and provide other aid and support. Every state runs its owns low income energy assistance program (LIHEAP).

Hello,
We live on Monmouth County New Jersey. We are picking up the pieces of hurricane Sandy. We are a family of 4. I, my husband and our two young children. We are about to move into a new home and we are behind on our electric and gas bill. After Sandy hit my husband lost work and our bills were left unpaid. Things are getting better now. Husband is working full time and we are moving. Finally normalcy after this long journey. We need to pay off these bills to get service turned on in our new place. If you could point is in the right direction that would be great. Thank you so much.

My power has been recently shut off. I was already having problems due to water leakage under my apartment so my bedroom became uninhabitable. I intermittently was staying there while waiting for my bedroom floor to dry from water leak. I came home one day to no power. I have a 18 year old student and an 11 year old. I am a single mom finding it hard to find work as I was laid-off over 1 year ago. I am extremely strapped for funds; every penny I get goes to my rent and my bills get put aside. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Unfortunately I am unemployed right now. I have been trying to find a job and I am receiving unemployment. I am currently overdue on my last power bill and I have pushed back my upcoming bill until July 27th. I have been trying to find ways to make money but everything I have come up with has gone to rent/water/gas/insurance. I have ran out of options and I am desperate. I contacted Alabama power and they directed me towards your organization and said y'all might be able to help. Anything will help. Thank you,
