The Malloy, Overton, Mabry Utility Fund (MOM)
The Utility Fund honors three "soldiers" of EmPOWERment that passed away this year. The fund is designed with two goals in mind: to assist low-income residents with paying their utility bills, and to promote financial literacy. Residents receiving support from the fund are encouraged to seek financial literacy training through EmPOWERment housing counseling sessions and training videos.
