PSC Names Apopka Job Connection Center Helping Hand


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission’s first Helping Hand of the New Year is Goodwill Industries of Central Florida’s Apopka Job Connection Center, providing tools that help clients overcome barriers to employment and find meaningful work year-round.

“We recognize Damaris Moraza and the Job Connection Center she manages for their partnership to help clients reduce their utility bills and apply for the Lifeline Assistance discounted telephone program,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “It’s rewarding to reach those who especially need our assistance while seeking employment, and we thank the Apopka Job Connection Center for this opportunity.”

Each month, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers stretch their resources to meet their monthly bills.

“We’re very pleased to be recognized as the PSC’s first Helping Hand of 2016,” said Ms. Moraza. “Our Center is dedicated to offering a broad range of programs that help our clients improve their quality of life, and we’re pleased that the PSC helps our clients better understand how they can save money on utility services.”
