New program paying up to $500 in utility bills for metro Detroit essential workers

As quarantining at home continues, utility bills are bound to be higher. Saunteel Jenkins, CEO of THAW, says there is no shame in asking for assistance.

Jenkins said she had a conversation with administrators from Henry Ford Hospital about the challenges some workers are facing with paying their bills. That led the non-profit to extend its services during the C

OVID-19 pandemic.

“One of the things this crisis has shown is that we’re all vulnerable,” Jenkins said.

She tells 7 Action News THAW has been helping low-income residents and seniors with their utility bills for 35 years. Starting Wednesday, Jenkins says essential workers facing hardship because of the COVID-19 pandemic can apply for a new Utility Relief Program as well.
