Fuel Assistance and Utilities Workshops

Economic instability and the rising costs of basic needs have the greatest impact on the most disadvantaged members of a community. Families, right next door, are struggling with the increased costs of food, heat and housing. Nobody is more directly affected than the working poor.

I want you to know that there is help out there, for everyone.

Learn how to save energy and avoid being left out in the cold at a free Utilities Workshop offered by the Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership. These workshops are sponsored by the Brookline Home Heating Task Force.

At a seminar you will learn how to:
-Apply for weatherization and fuel assistance
-Get discounted rates from your utility companies
-Find options for paying overdue bills
-Learn your rights and responsibilities as a consumer

The next meeting, in an ongoing series, will be held Friday, November 7th, from 10:00am—11:30am at the Brookline Senior Center, 93 Winchester Street, Brookline, MA.
