The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing Light of the World Ministries in Duval County as its first Helping Hand of the new year. The organization assisted the PSC in raising public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance communications discount program, energy and water conservation, and scams affecting low-income consumers during a community event in Jacksonville.
“We reach out to the homeless, poor, and needy in the Jacksonville area,” said Shelly Divido. “Our involvement with the PSC and the Feeding Northeast Florida helps us to reach consumers needing food and to be able to connect with their loved ones.”
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 better manage their resources to meet their monthly bills and avoid falling for utility-related scams.
