FSL (Foundation for Senior Living) has funds available for Maricopa County residents who need assistance with their utility bills and medical bills. In addition, they have been able to expand their food pantry to help anyone over 60 years of age and those with a disability or chronic health condition.
“We want the community to know, we’re here to help,” said Tom Egan, president and CEO, FSL. “Our team is working hard to ensure seniors and families are getting the assistance they need. We have two options for utility assistance for anyone who is having trouble making APS or SRP payments. Our food pantry is available to seniors who aren’t able to get out and grocery shop.”
Funds can be used towards utility bills, bus or Dial a Ride tickets if you need help getting to medical appointments or other urgent appointments, or even payment towards a medical bill.
