Care To Share

This program provides crisis assistance to customers who are unable to pay their electric bills. In 2017, FPL provided nearly $1.5 million in Care to Share assistance for customers in need and helped more than 4,000 households in crisis pay their bills.

In addition to contributions from customers and employees, donations to Care to Share included $1 million from NextEra Energy shareholders in 2017.

Every dollar donated is given directly to those in need through partner agencies such as The Salvation Army, and no tax-deductible donations are used for fundraising or administrative costs.

Since 1994, Care to Share has raised nearly $24 million to help approximately 93,000 Florida families in need.

FPL ASSIST

FPL works with nearly 900 agencies system-wide to facilitate payment assistance for qualified customers. Funding sources include the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, the Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program for the Elderly, FPL Care to Share and other funding sources from nonprofit and faith-based groups.

In 2017, advocacy partners helped secure more than $24.9 million in energy assistance for more than 88,000 customers in need of help paying their electric bills.

Testimonial

"Jewish Family Service of Broward has enjoyed a close working relationship with FPL for many years. We cannot say enough about the courtesy, respect and quick response that the ASSIST staff has shown our social workers and clients. Our partnership has allowed us to help the neediest in our community at a time when so many are in crisis."

--Barbara Bailin, Director of Information and Referral, Jewish Family Service of Broward County

Community Care for the Elderly

This program provides assistance to qualifying seniors aged 60 and older so they can remain in their homes or with their caregivers rather than relocating to institutional care facilities. In 2016 and 2017, FPL supported the Florida Council on Aging (FCOA) with a shareholder sponsorship of $5,000, which was matched by donations from partner organizations and individuals across the state. Together, these sponsorships enabled FCOA to conduct a grassroots advocacy campaign that helped increase funding for the program from the Florida Legislature.
