Support Our Sheltonians
Support Our Sheltonians, or SOS, is a program that began in 2004. The City of Shelton, with the help of the Community Action Council and caring community members, can provide assistance to households that need help paying their City utility bills.

Support Our Sheltonians is a great opportunity for neighbors to assist those less fortunate that are struggling to pay their utility bills. All donations are tax-deductible!

Since the beginning of SOS, 158 families have received assistance. Please consider a contribution to this program and help our community members in need. All donated funds go directly to help low-income seniors and residents with disabilities; there are no administrative costs associated with this program.
