Children who lack a stable home are vulnerable to many adverse outcomes, including chronic health problems, difficulty accessing health care and witnessing violence. The lack of utilities can often be the pre-cursor to homelessness and other family issues. Children, the elderly and handicap individuals are most affected when utility cost is more than they can afford based off their income.
