The Florida Public Service Commission is recognizing the Lifestyle Enrichment Center in Columbia County as October’s Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program, energy and water conservation, and scams affecting seniors.
“The Lifestyle Enrichment Center offers educational programs to help seniors remain independent,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “We appreciate the Center for helping us reach their clients who can benefit from our information and inviting us to their events so that we can personally share utility bill saving strategies.”
Each month, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline Assistance program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers better manage their resources to meet their monthly bills and avoid falling for utility-related scams.
“We provide a holistic approach to active aging, with programs designed to preserve independence,” said Dawn Johns, Lifestyle Enrichment Center Activities/Volunteer Director. “Our PSC partnership complements the Center’s key goals. Through client interaction, the PSC shares money-saving tips and ways to be a smart consumer.”
