Without heating and cooling in the winter and summer months, family members may fall ill. If families in the Olmsted Community are low income and have received utility shut-off notices, Christians In Action will assist by paying a portion of the bill required to get the heat and cooling turned back on. Any financial assistance is made payable directly to the utility provider. CIA provides financial help for water, gas and electric.
All families assisted must be registered with Christians In Action FOR AT LEAST 3 MONTHS before Utility Assistance can be provided. No Utility checks can be written for first time registrants!
