Introduction:When times are hard, it is difficult to find enough money to pay for everything that needs to be paid such as your utility bills. Stretching nickles into dimes and then into dollars is not easy. Thankfully, there are ways to get help paying your utility bills.
The Salvation Army is one place to get help paying your utility bills. Usually, there must be a disconnect notice, but funds all almost always available for people who need help paying their gas or electric bills.
Community Action Programs is another place to get help paying your utility bills. Check your local telephone book or online for one in your area. Different locations may have different requirements, but funds are usually available.
Catholic Charities is a place to get help paying your utility bills. More than likely you will have to fill out applications and give them enough notice to make sure the funds are available.
The United Way is another place to get help paying your utility bills. Try calling 211 so you can speak with someone who can tell of you the different organizations, foundations and charities that can help pay your utility bills.
Local churches are places to get help paying your utility bills. You may have to speak with several different churches and get funds from each of them to cover one bill. Like everywhere else, their funds are low, but they will do what they can.
As difficult as it may be to ask for help, it is something that everyone has to do at one time or another. Keeping your gas and electric on should take priority over your pride. Remember you can always "pay it forward" and help someone in need when you find yourself in better circumstances.
