CSC provides utility assistance to help our community with some of the basic life essentials that everyone needs and deserves. We work between local utility providers and low-income community members to pay towards their power, gas and/or water bills, no shut off notice or late bill required.

We provide weatherization to qualifying households to increase energy savings and make homes healthier and safer by keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Our goal is better energy conversation for you and our community.
