  • If you need help finding some agencies, dont be afraid to message me.

  • I work in Social Services (NJ) , there are many agencies that help.  First call your utility company to see what agencies offer help, they will have a list.  Also, your local United Way, Salvation Army and local churches offer programs too.

  • Call the electric company, they sometimes are lenient about giving some time, or making payment plans...

  • I have never met anyone who has been assisted by Salvation Army and I have worked in social service administration for 30 years. United Way does not provide direct service.

  • Call the electric company and explain you are trying to get the money together. Then call 211 and they will give you a list of churches and agencies that will help you. Good luck to you.

  • All of the above, plus family and friends.
