During the past program year, the Milford Service Unit provided 52 households, encompassing 132 people, with assistance with housing, utilities, medical expenses, and other emergency needs. Additionally, we distributed 10 car seats to families and 288 back to school backpacks for school-aged children.
The Salvation Army's Milford Service Unit strives to holistically address the unique emergency needs of individuals and families residing in Milford.
We also utilize the Santa Energy/Fuel Company in Bridgeport as a referral resource to deliver 100 gallons on the same day or next day when a need arises for a family. A check is sent directly to Santa Energy/Fuel on an as-needed basis so that funds can be drawn down to pay for the oil.
When a family is referred to or calls the Service Unit seeking assistance with a gas or electric bill, the bill is scanned and sent to the Keeping Milford Warm Executive Director who then makes payment directly to the appropriate source.
As a result of our partnership with Keeping Milford Warm over the past four years, we have been able to assist more people, redirecting funds that would otherwise have been spent on energy assistance to other needs in the Milford community.
