El Beth-El Development Center Named PSC Helping Hand

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission is recognizing the El Beth-El Development Center as November’s Helping Hand for helping raise public awareness about the Lifeline Assistance telephone discount program, energy and water conservation, and scams affecting seniors.

“El Beth-El strives to empower underprivileged communities and works to revitalize the lives of adults and children in urban communities,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown.  “We appreciate the Center for their contributions in helping Jacksonville build a stronger and healthier community and for helping us reach consumers who can benefit from our information about utility bill saving strategies.”

Each month, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline Assistance program and/or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares vital information to help consumers better manage their resources to meet their monthly bills and avoid falling for utility-related scams.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a PSC Helping Hand,” said Bishop Dr. Lorenzo Hall. “El Beth-El Development Center, a faith based nonprofit humanitarian organization, works to help low-income consumers  access educational tools that help them improve their quality of life.  We appreciate partnering with the PSC to help them protect themselves from scammers and understand how they can save money on utility services.”
