Villas of Carver Park Named PSC Helping Hand


TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing Villas of Carver Park as a PSC Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program, energy and water conservation, and utility impersonation scams.

“We appreciate the Orlando Housing Authority’s willingness to host events at the Villas of Carver Park, where we can share important information with residents,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “Through an ongoing partnership, we distribute our Lifeline, scam protection, and conservation materials to senior residents, who can most benefit from the information.”

Begun in 2013, 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.
