Katessa, Grant Recipient:
“After being diagnosed with kidney cancer and knowing that I would have to have surgery and possibly other treatments, I greatly worried about how I would pay for all of the hospital bills. I do have medical insurance but it does not cover everything. When I applied for the grant and received the notification that a portion of my medical bills was paid, I was so relieved.”

“Launching an Immediate Response Program with Emergency Assistance Foundation broadened employee assistance eligibility and provided a new way to show all of our employees that we care. This step eliminated doubts, demonstrating that the company will support employees during challenging times, regardless of title or salary. This notion is demonstrative of our company culture and has helped reinforce NRG as place where people are proud to work.”

“You never know when hardship is going to strike. You don’t know where it’s going to strike or who it may impact. We’ve learned that no one is immune to it, so we can all benefit from having a little bit of assistance to get us through rough times.”
