CPLC is an all-encompassing organization helping individuals and families become economically and politically empowered and self-sufficient. The organization provides bilingual and bi-cultural services in health and human service, housing, education, and economic development to more than 300,000 individuals annually. Founded in 1969, CPLC today serves communities in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico, making it one of the largest Hispanic nonprofits in the country.
“We look forward to adding APS’s Crisis Bill Assistance Program and information about APS’s Energy Support Program to our emergency assistance services,” said Andres L. Contreras, CPLC Executive Vice President of Social Services and Education. “This will enable us to further support families in need with financial relief to help them keep their electricity and AC running. The program will provide access to much needed funding for families that struggle to make ends meet and want an opportunity to get back on their feet.”
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has been working to feed, clothe, house and heal Arizona families and individuals since 1946. Programs and services include dining rooms, food boxes, utility and rent assistance, a shelter, a medical and dental clinic for the uninsured and a resource center for individuals experiencing homelessness. In addition to serving those with nowhere else to turn for help, St. Vincent de Paul provides meaningful service opportunities for volunteers of all ages.
“This APS funding comes in perfect timing, as summers tend to be very stressful for hard-working families and individuals who are already living paycheck to paycheck,” said Shannon Clancy, St. Vincent de Paul’s Associate Executive Director. “We’re so appreciative of our partnership with ACAA and now even more grateful for APS and the support as we serve those in need.”
