A missed utility payment may seem minor. But when unpaid utility bills eventually turn into a shut-off notice, the consequences can be severe.
UESF’s mission to keep families in their homes was built on utility assistance. Our signature program allows us to provide utility grants—matched dollar-for-dollar by utility companies—to prevent shut-offs. UESF also works directly with the Philadelphia Water Department and the Water Revenue Bureau to stabilize housing through plumbing repairs, water conservation, public benefit screening, and financial counseling.
