The Bill Payer Program uses social workers to visit eligible older adults at home and match them with a volunteer who can help clients write out checks and ensure that their monthly bills are paid and their budgets are balanced.

The Bill Payer Program DOES NOT:

  • Handle credit card debt cases
  • Provide financial assistance
