EnergyCare is the nonprofit organization in St. Louis that has been helping vulnerable, low-income people find safety from the extremes of temperature since 1983. Low-income seniors face impossible choices: pay for heating or buy food; fill prescriptions or use the air conditioner. These problems are especially acute for the families EnergyCare serves – the elderly, chronically ill, disabled, or a child under 5 – because they are most vulnerable to extremes of temperature.

"To really help those in danger of the extremes of weather that we experience her in St. Louis, it takes many people in all walks of life but especially in Social Services and the helping professions, for they are the unsung and often unknown humanitarians, who go about the daily task of bringing warmth to homes and hearts frequently at great personal expense.
