Keeping the Heat On


Posted on January 3, 2019

Months behind on his utility bills and facing the prospect of a bitingly cold winter in Colorado, Danny* was plagued with worry over not having heat for his family of five. When their electricity was shut off, he finally decided to seek out a Navigator for help.

The Navigator helped the family find immediate relief and have their electricity restored through an Energy Outreach Colorado grant. With the immediate problem solved, the Navigator continued to meet Danny each week for a month. Together, they created financial goals and a budget. With the Navigator consistently checking in, Danny began improving his financial capabilities, saving money and building a safety net to help him through future shortfalls.
