EmPower Hamilton

EmPower Hamilton helps local families in need through the Salvation Army and the Emergency Money Fund utility support programs. These programs play a critical role by helping Hamilton residents avoid service disconnections in times of need. In 2015, this partnership assisted more than 500 families in our community!

EmPower Hamilton allows Hamilton Utility customers to make direct contributions to our partner organizations through their monthly utility bills. 100% of these donations are forwarded to the Hamilton Community Foundation for use by the Salvation Army and the Emergency Money Fund to help those in need in our community.
