Assurance Wireless comes to PCCC

Pueblo Cooperative Care Center is proud to announce that we have partnered with Joseph Tyquiengco and Assurance Wireless to bring value-added services to Pueblo County. 

Recognizing the important benefits associated with phone access and concerns that low-income households may not be able to afford phone service on their own, the U.S. Government created the Lifeline Assistance program. This government benefit program is supported by the Federal Universal Service Fund (USF). Since 1985, the Federal Lifeline Assistance program has provided discounted phone service to low-income households that qualify based on Federal or state-specific eligibility criteria. This partnership will provide many Pueblo Cooperative Care Center clients with needed services and Assurance will be at the center Monday’s through Wednesday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. through December 18th
