Since July 2014, over 4,500 people who believe water is a human right have helped over 1,800 families with their water bills.
Yes, I want to help with a water bill I need help with my water bill
Water is a human right. But, the United States has a water affordability problem. In places like Detroit, Baltimore, and other cities, families unable to afford their water bills have their water shut off. When this happens, kids can't bathe, people can't wash dishes, and grandparents can't flush their toilets. The Human Utility is non-profit organization providing help to families and makes sure they always have running water at home.
This is the question we're asked the most. Start here to learn why water isn't affordable.Learn why Meet a family

Water is a human right. Yet there are cities across the nation such as Detroit & Baltimore where families unable to afford their water bills have their water service disconnected.
Okay next up, I’m going to up my monthly donation to @humanutility which means I’m supporting the work of @tiffani . Anyone want to join me by either upping their monthly donation or making a one time donation to support her work? https://t.co/yLZ4WEdKBX— Qiana P. (@Q_i_a_n_a) October 26, 2019
