Over the last several months I have had the opportunity to serve as a case manager with one of the non-profits that allocates EOC funds to clients in Denver and other areas of Colorado. In this role I have been able to see first-hand, how those who are affected by job loss and other difficulties end up in situations where they must choose between keeping a roof over their head, feeding their family, and paying their utility bills so they can have heat and electricity. For many, this decision is an impossible one but ends in a house without lights or warmth. In my opinion, EOCs means of allocating funds to community organizations like the one I work for, provides a necessary service for low-income families and individuals who would otherwise live without some of the basic necessities they need.
