As the Executive Director of Las Animas Helping Hands, I have had the privilege of working closely with Energy Outreach Colorado for the past 10 years. They reach out compassionately to individuals and families going through a difficult time and provide grants for organizations throughout Colorado to help keep client's heat and electricity on. I appreciate how Energy Outreach Colorado is continually thinking of additional ways to help the needy and help nonprofit organizations that serve them!

Having had the pleasure and honor of working with EOC for the past 11 years, I can honestly say that in my personal experience with non profit organizations, not all have the dedication, vested interest and concern for the citizens of their State as EOC does. Just in working with them, our organization has also gained a valuable sense of compassion for our citizens as well as the citizens of Colorado. We have also seen first hand the many hours of overtime, personal time and heartfelt effort everyone at this organization puts forward to ensure others' needs are met, from assisting financially, those with little or no income, ensuring the health, well being and safety of households in need of heating repairs and maintenance, and in cases of extreme emergency, taking any steps necessary to prevent any household from going without heat or services.

Our non-profit (Habitat for Humanity of the St Vrain Valley) and, more to the point, our clients, have benefited greatly from the work of Energy Outreach Colorado. We receive funds to install energy efficiency upgrades in the homes that we build. Our homes achieve Energy Star status and the improvements literally save hundreds of dollars a year for our very low income homeowners. That's money that can be used for other basic necessities. We are so grateful for Energy Outreach Colorado's partnership.

As a Board member of the SisterCarmen Community Center in Lafayette and working design engineer in the food service equipment field for 48 years it has been very rewarding working with the staff of the Non-profit division of Energy Outreach Colorado-NEEP. We are in the process of developing a food bank, client shopping facility and bulk warehouse to serve not only our Eastern Boulder County clientelle, but also the ability to warehouse bulk product for other county agencies without sufficient storage space. The task includes office space for ourselves and other non profit agencies who do not have a building or affordable space to rent. We are converting an existing former defense agency manufacturing facility and the assistance furnished by NEEP has been essential to getting us up and operating by late Spring 2011. Our building is 23 years old and the HVAC systems are old, inefficient and past their normal life expectancy. The redesigned use of the space made it even more complicated. The dedication of the NEEP staff to helping us through this proceedure has been extremely helpful.

EOC makes so many great things happen in this community. Through their work 1000's of families remain housed and warm. They also use their influence to help their partner nonprofits. Denver is a warmer, safer and better place because of EOC!

Without Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC)more than 700 families each year would find themselves sitting in the dark in their own homes. Through Energy Outreach Colorado we have as an agency been able to help that number of families every year as a result of energy grants received from EOC. Many people think of the needs of those in distress particularly during cold winter months. but what happens when there is no money to pay an electric bill in the summer - when refrigerators can't operate and food is spoiled; when the heat is sweltering and there is no means to cool down a fretful baby or elderly parent. EOC comes to the rescue in winter and in summer. They are concerned about the energy needs of people throughout the entire state and work with local agencies to help people in need. They are generous in their grants and personable to work with. They have a heart as well as a purse from which they draw resources and distribute to thousands.

give them more money so they can give more money around the state to help people in need.

Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) is an amazing organization that collaborates with existing service agencies to meet the raising demand for utility assistance funding. We have collaborated with EOC for a little under 20 years and through the funding they make available we have served countless families with the much needed financial assistance to keep their utilities on. To many families who choose between purchasing food and paying for utility and heating costs this is aninvaluable service. It helps them stretch their dollars to continue surving in a situation of poverty and for some of them it gets them a step closer to self-sufficiency. This emergency service is very needed in a time of economic uncertaintly for many. EOC serves those below the poverty line who struggle to make ends meet; to those who have faced a crisis that has had financial reprecussions and just need help to get back on track.
