On Monday, September 18, 2017, OPC Consumer Services Staff member, Jean Gross-Bethel provided the seniors of the Hattie Holmes Wellness Center with information on the service offerings of the Office of the People’s Counsel. The Hattie Holmes Wellness Center, located at 324 Kennedy Street, N.W., provides resources, services and activities to seniors who primarily reside within Ward 4. Many of the attendees had questions regarding disconnections, service complaints, available financial resources, and third party suppliers and their solicitation practices. OPC addressed the attendees concerns individually and provided them with informational brochures. To learn more about this and other utility issues, or to have an OPC speaker attend your event, contact Aaron Ward, Manager, OPC Consumer Services Division at (202) 727-3071.
