American Water’s Homeowner Services division announces $25,000 in donations to two Illinois organizations on behalf of the American Water Charitable Foundation’s community-focused COVID-19 Response Fund. TriCity Family Services and the United Way of Metro Chicago—Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund, will each receive $12,500 to support the critical needs of communities most impacted by the pandemic.
“During these challenging times, Homeowner Services is committed to supporting the health, safety and well-being of its neighbors and communities,” said Eric Palm, President, Homeowner Services. “We are proud that the American Water Charitable Foundation is able to offer assistance to both organizations through the COVID-19 response fund, which will provide essential support, services and resources to residents and homeowners in our Nicor Home Solutions footprint.”
TriCity Family Services is a human service agency serving community members and organizations of Central Kane County.

United Way of Metro Chicago serves the Chicago metropolitan area, including all of Cook and DuPage counties. The organization, in collaboration with the City of Chicago and The Chicago Community Trust recently launched the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund to unite the funds raised by Chicago’s philanthropies, corporations and individuals to be disbursed to nonprofit organizations across the region and provide resources to community-based organizations.
Homeowner Services’ protection programs continue to be an optional resource for individuals and families spending more time at home, placing additional stress and usage on their systems and vital lines. The unexpected – protected.
