Sunrise Senior Center Named PSC Helping Hand

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is pleased to award its July Helping Hand recognition to the Sunrise Senior Center. The Center, located in Sunrise, offers a wide variety of leisure and educational programs, support groups, and special events and helped the PSC provide beneficial information to their clients.

“The Sunrise Senior Center fosters active community participation and encourages partnerships, such as ours, that can help their clients. During May’s Older Americans Month, we discussed how to lower monthly utility bills,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown.  “Participating in these types of community events allows us to also help those who can apply for the federal Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program.”

Each month, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients can benefit from learning how to reduce energy and water bills, how to protect themselves against utility-related scams, and how to apply for the federal Lifeline program, if they’re eligible.  Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers manage their resources to meet their monthly bills. 

“We are pleased to be named a PSC Helping Hand partner,” said Kathy Osborn, Special and Community Support Services Director.  “The Center’s aim is to help residents achieve and maintain an independent, healthy lifestyle. We appreciate the PSC’s educational forum to assist our community and look forward to continuing our partnership”
