Thousands of people in northeast Ohio will need help to stay warm this winter.
There are four energy assistance programs that the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland oversees in Cuyahoga County.
One of those programs is called The Winter Crisis program.
“If you are threatened with a disconnection on a bill or presently disconnected you need me,” said Robert Hamilton with The Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland.
The program started on Nov. 1 and runs through March 31, 2014. Hamilton said he expects the agency will help roughly 15,000 households by the time the program ends.
The Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland has extended hours at the Winter Crisis Program at the 1849 Prospect Avenue office. The office opens its doors at 6:30 a.m. The first 75 walk-ins each day are accepted and then appointments are scheduled daily.
