Center in the Park helps older adults through the transitions of aging with a broad range of programs and services, all geared to maintaining
independence and dignity. Most older adults remain in their own homes, but may need help remaining independent. CIP's social workers can
help these adults evaluate their needs and link them with services that make their home lives easier, more comfortable and less isolated.
Sometimes, talking through the situation with a knowledgeable professional is in itself, a helpful first step. In other situations,
additional resources are available that can make a real difference in quality of life.
Utility Emergency Services Fund (UESF) is a grant that can provide assistance to eligible Philadelphia residents in shut off status with their utility. Eligible residents must be at or below the 175% poverty level, have a current shut off notice and cannot have received UESF within the past two years. Meet with Center in the Park’s Neighborhood Energy Center to see if you qualify. You must provide proof of income and social security cards for each member of the house and the current shut off notice from the utility company. Funding is limited and based on a first come first serve basis.
