The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing the Taylor Senior Citizens Center in Taylor County as February’s Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone and broadband discount program, energy and water conservation, and scams affecting seniors.
“The Taylor Senior Citizens Center offers educational programs that support our outreach strategies to assist older persons in need,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown. “We appreciate the Center including us in community outreach events so we can share utility bill saving strategies with their clients.”
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.
“We appreciate the PSC honoring us with this award. Our seniors really enjoyed the PSC presentation that will help them save money on their bills and be aware of current consumer scams,” said Joan Hennings, Older Americans Act Assistant/Case Manager. “Our Center provides programs for elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged persons who need assistance to maintain their independence and quality of life. The PSC information is helpful in our ongoing effort to connect older adults to vital community services that can help them stay independent.”
