Energy Outreach Colorado is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by providing critical energy assistance.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, we are seeing the impacts disproportionately affect our most vulnerable neighbors across the state. We see this pandemic affect those living on fixed incomes or lower wages, and have little to no savings to fall back on. Many of our neighbors are falling behind on their energy bills.
That is why Energy Outreach Colorado is fighting to support and advocate for our neighbors in their time of need.
How Is Energy Outreach Colorado Responding?
Our mission is to provide critical home energy support to vulnerable Coloradans. This pandemic has weakened our economy, our community members, and community resources. As a statewide nonprofit that has provided more than $100 Million in assistance to people and organizations in need over the past 5 years, our resolve to stand and protect our community is stronger than ever.
We are well positioned to accept funding and quickly serve people and nonprofits in every county across the state.
Our staff is a team of experts that are committed to the well-being of our community members. We bring a range of expertise and training to combat energy poverty and we are working with our network of partners to ensure that people can stay safe in their homes and focus on staying healthy.
Who is Energy Outreach Colorado Helping?
For vulnerable Coloradans facing increased energy use due to being home bound there is great concern and fear around how they will afford their energy bill.
