Since 2011, thousands of low income families have been cut-off of public assistance, struggled to find safe, affordable housing; and had difficulty making ends meet in this Emergency Manager-grand austerity economy. The utility crisis is one of many daily struggles Detroit area families have in keeping on lights for newborn babies and children, and keeping on breathing machines for elders who also need their medications refrigerated. Affordable payment options are one way to protect families but we must do more to ensure the health and well-being of low income families. Come join us to discuss what we can do.
