Stream Energy is a direct selling firm that offers an array of services to customers. They offer electricity, protective, and smart home services. Since this company was established in 2005 they have achieved more than $8 billion in revenues. Their energy services are sold in Texas, Georgia, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, New York, Ohia, Delaware, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. Their other services are available across the nation and are sold by around 250,000 independent contractors. They strive to offer opportunities to female entrepreneurs and so have created a Women of Power organization to encourage them to discover just how much they can achieve running their own business.
A number of years ago Stream Energy created Stream Cares, a philanthropic arm of the business. This is a formal way of providing funds and volunteers to a variety of good causes. They were one of the first organizations to respond when Hurricane Harvey drenched the greater Houston area with 56 inches of rainfall. In addition to providing money to those who had lost everything the Stream Cares volunteers also fanned out into the community helping out where they could.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Stream Energy also reduced the energy fees paid by their customers. The goal was to help people get back on their feet as quickly as possible. It was only once their customer’s lives had been stabilized that this additional support was removed.
Stream Cares has partnered with a number of nonprofits over the past several years. One of these is Hope Supply Co. which is a nonprofit benefiting children who are homeless. Stream Energy has also provided funds to the American Red Cross, including $15,000 which was given in the fall of 2017 to help with people had were facing a natural disaster. Another organization they financially support is Habitat for Humanity and their mission to build homes for low-income households across the United States.
