Joe Ann’s Story – Living a Little Better Due to LIHEAP
Joe Ann has received LIHEAP service through Mid-Cumberland Community Action Agency for five years. Her escalating electric bills made her aware of the importance of conserving energy where possible and has helped her “live a little better.” She no longer has to worry about how to pay her electric bill as she pinches her pennies. LIHEAP helps her maintain independent living, which she truly appreciates.
Joe Ann first heard about LIHEAP from the former secretary at the low-income housing development where she lives, Angie Young. According to Joe Ann, Angie made sure everyone who needed help knew about MCCAA services and encouraged them to apply. Angie worked closely with MCCAA to coordinate the LIHEAP outreach events at the housing development and provided applications to residents who needed service.
MCCAA took notice of Angie Young’s hard work to promote the agency and decided to hire her! Angie now works in accounting with MCCAA, a position she has held for almost a year. MCCAA is very proud to have Angie and appreciates her as a vital part of a hardworking team of professionals who truly love serving others.
