While having a phone helps families keep in touch or offers a chance to keep up with friends, it can also be a lifeline in times of an emergency or a crucial need when trying to look for a better job.
To keep everyone connected, the Mississippi Public Service Commission will be traveling around the state next week in recognition of National Lifeline Awareness Week, meeting with citizens to explain the Lifeline program which offers financial help to customers who are struggling to pay their phone bills.
