This week on Dialogue, reporter Steve Kotchko interviews Brenda Watson, acting director of Operation Fuel.  Watson explains her non-profit’s 40-year history of helping low-income people cope with their winter heating bills.  She discusses the struggle many families go through trying to spread around their limited income to pay for fuel, food, and health care.  Watson explains that often, the combined resources of Operation Fuel, the utilities, the state and federal governments are not enough to resolve the financial stresses involved for people in need.
