You can schedule an appointment. Please remember to bring all required paperwork to your appointment. You must wear your mask inside the building at all times. Only one member of a household at a time may come inside the building. Children are not prohibited inside the building at this time, as to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
We have received a more friendly definition of a crisis, so that if you have a past due balance or have made a delay payment arrangement, that may be considered a crisis.
When the utility companies start issuing disconnect notices again, those will also be a crisis as they have been in the past.
