“My family’s electric bill was over $1,200 due to equipment needed to treat COPD and severe asthma. I didn’t know where to go or what to do when I came upon the LIHEAP program. PCA showed me how much they cared for me, without even knowing me personally. I am so thankful programs like this are out there for people in need, and I am forever grateful.”
