The Lifestyle Enrichment Center of Fort White’s mission—Where Life is Celebrated Every Day—is helping many Columbia County senior adults take charge of their lives with year-round educational programs. As a recent program participant, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing the Center as its first 2018 Helping Hand.
“Helping seniors remain independent and engaged with their community is very important for continued quality of life,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “The PSC applauds the Lifestyle Enrichment Center for its partnership in helping its clientele better understand how the Commission can help them.”
Each quarter, the PSC highlights a partner agency or organization whose clients are eligible for the federal Lifeline telephone/broadband discount program or need help reducing energy and water bills. Through these PSC Helping Hand partnerships, the Commission shares information to help consumers stretch their resources to meet their monthly bills.
“We surround our seniors with daily activities because it’s a good investment for them and for the community. The PSC’s assistance supports our ongoing programs,” said Deborah Rhoades, Site Manager, Lifestyle Enrichment Center. “Our seniors benefit from information on Lifeline, scam alerts, energy and water conservation, and utility bill payment assistance. We plan on another PSC visit soon.”
