Money for energy bills from Salvation Army programs

Post by Tommy10As » Mon Oct 28, 2013 9:02 am

Good morning,
I am writing this email hoping for some additional options and help paying my Consumers energy bill. I was denied by DHS for help. I have tried for 2 days getting help through the Salvation Army, but I wasn't able to get through on either day. Phone line was busy the entire time. I live in Flint, Michigan and currently have a shut-off notice for consumers energy. I have 5 people in the home including myself. I make $33,000 a year. I have been behind on my bill because I've been caring for my husband who has severe Chron's Disease. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Did you try stopping by the Salvation Army center in Flint Michigan? It is always better to do that to show your serious, are working towards self-sufficiency, etc. They have zero obligation to give you or anyone funds (even if they have them) for paying utility bills, so by meeting program conditions, showing you paid your Consumer Energy bills on time in the past, and are responsible, all of that will improve your changes of getting help. Anyway, locate the Michigan Salvation Army centers and assistance programs. Click here

Hi
I have tried 4 times each Monday as requested. I am sad to say this is one of the most difficult numbers to get any assistance. The reason is the number is always busy from 8:30am - 10:30am.
The other agencies have a more approachable and manageable process. I am in dire need of rental assistance for the month of December. I live in the zip code of 30350.

Good afternoon, I am trying to find out where I can apply for utility assistance through the Salvation Army. I live in Homewood, IL and according to the page, the location for me to apply is at Bloom Township Center in Chicago Heights, IL. However, when I contacted them to find out what was needed to apply, I was told that they have not received passwords to get into the system, so they could not assist me with energy bills. Since this intake site is down right now according to them, is there any other location I can go to apply to for money for my energy bills instead that will take me out of the area they generally service? Please let me know about the Salvation Army energy bill programs. Thank you so much. Have a great day!
