- The power company disconnected you from your natural gas, electricity, or water (including sewer) services.

- You are about to default on a payment arrangement you made with your utility company and will be at risk of disconnection.

It is important to call or start a conversation right away so we can work together to try to prevent disconnection or to restore services quickly.
In the winter, we can often provide a safe space heater while we work to restore services or we can help you develop a temporary plan to stay warm while we work with your utility provider.
