Community AssistanceWhile The University of Scranton cannot assist individuals directly with monetary donations/volunteers, we can help you find resources and social service agencies that we work with in our local community. note that some agencies may not have funding or supplies at all times and several have deadlines for applications and limited resources. Please contact the agency directly for current information.
Energy Assistance (Heat, Power, Water)
The federal government funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Crisis Component provides emergency financial and energy bill assistance to eligible Lackawanna County residents to help them divert a crisis. The program can provide utility bill payment assistance to reconnect/prevent termination of heating related utility services, and it can also provide for the repairs or replacements of non functioning furnaces and heating units. It provides qualifying North East PA applicants with a grant to reactivate water service when it has been shut off. This is a feature that sets each monthly bill you receive at the same amount. The utility company may adjust the bill four times a year, whether up or down, depending on the customer’s usage. Call them at (570) 963 6836. Following a general assessment, our Intake workers allocate appropriate services such as advocacy, referral, and financial assistance, to help fulfill clients immediate needs. work also serves a secondary function to help families achieve self sufficiency in the long run.
