The Star-Telegram is shining a light on an ambitious effort to end poverty in Fort Worth – and TXU Energy is part of the story.

Heather Reynolds, CEO of Catholic Charities of Fort Worth, told the Star-Telegram editorial board that money provided by TXU Energy, its employees and customers allows her organization to help TXU Energy customers who are in financial crisis and preserve other funds for long-term, poverty-ending efforts.

Catholic Charities of Fort Worth has been a partner in the TXU Energy Aid program for more than a dozen years. In the past five years alone, the agency has used the program to help TXU Energy customers pay about 90,000 electricity bills totaling about $2.5 million.

In all, TXU Energy works with about 80 social service agencies across the state to administer the more than 30-year-old emergency assistance program. It also works closely with hundreds of additional government and non-profit agencies that use public and other private funds to help consumers who are in financial crisis.

Reynolds calls TXU Energy a model for corporate partnership.
