One Human Community knows that the most common bills people have trouble paying are their phone, water and power and gas bills. All companies that provide these services have special programs for the unemployed and low income individuals and families. Visit their Websites, call or visit their offices to apply.

To get you started here’re some helpful links:

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
click on:     Residential Low Income Discount Program
and then on:    Low Income Discount Program Application (PDF)

Low cost phone services with California Lifeline
check if you qualify
if so, contact your phone company and request California Lifeline application.

Southern California Gas Company
check if you qualify
apply for a 20% discount with Southern California Gas Company

If your income is low, you’re unemployed or receive any type of government assistance, you’re likely to qualify: be advised you’ll be asked to document your hardship.

Don’t forget to ask also for a payment plan to pay off your delinquent bills over time.

I hope that the concept of One Human Community will eventually spread and inspire others to come together for a common good. But since One Human Community was created in San Fernando Valley, CA as a support group for local community members who’re suffering hardship, most of the resources that I make available here are helpful for L.A. area residents.

(If you live elsewhere: by all means, search Online! The solutions are out there. Unfortunately, those who can’t locate them suffer… Don’t give up; don’t walk away: SEARCH!)

Based on my personal experience, I know beyond any doubt that solutions to most hardship issues are available. I learned the hard way however that information about such resources (let’s be honest: solutions!) is not voluntarily provided even by those who administer them! I have no way of knowing why. Suffice to say, take my word for it because I speak from first hand experience, solutions are out there!
