In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, Dallas-based Stream Energy is helping people affected get back on their feet.
When Hurricane Harvey roared ashore, 56 inches of rain saturated the greater Houston area. People all over the world watched in horror and neighborhood after neighborhood became submerged in water. Dozens of people lost their lives, hundreds of houses and businesses were destroyed and thousands of people were displaced.
The outpouring of worldwide support was phenomenal. But local company Stream Energy really stepped up to the plate with initiatives to ease the financial burden of its customers. The charity foundation “Stream Cares” worked in conjunction with The Red Cross and Habitat For Humanity to give back to the community. The initiative proved successful on two fronts: giving those who have been affected a means to get back on their feet and the ability to gain the respect of the community.
Stream offered a simple business model that proved wildly effective: Provide a variety of services to both residential and business customers. As an successful associate, individuals can earn healthy commissions while supporting the cause of their choosing.
One of the biggest issues that needed tackling after Hurricane Harvey is homelessness. There were a number of people who lost everything, and not everyone had insurance. Many families had nothing to go back to and ended up staying in shelters or with other family members.
Stream Energy along with Hope Supply Company is helping people affected by Hurricane Harvey find shelter, as well as school supplies, diapers, clothing and many other things for the homeless.
Stream Energy was founded in 2005. The company offers energy services to many states including Texas, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Illinois, to name a few. They recently included wireless services for business and residential customers.
