SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) can be used to supplement your food budget costs. Money saved through SNAP could be used toward your medical costs. SNAP is income-based, but it is your income after shelter and medical expenses are deducted.

Home heating and energy assistance (a.k.a. Fuel Assistance) season runs from November 1st through April 30th and is available for eligible homeowners and renters, including households whose cost of heat is included in the rent (12 month assistance in that case).

branford - William J. Killion, 92, of Branford, CT, and a lifelong summer resident of Plum Island, died on June 16 at Connecticut Hospice in Branford. He had been fighting ill health for several months, but was still living on his own and driving until less than a week before his death. Bill was predeceased by his brother, Thomas W. Killion, and sisters, Jane Sipos and Grace Kress. He is survived by his sons, Mark and his wife, Toni of Branford, and Paul and his wife, Tina of Bristol, RI, and daughter, Sarah and husband, Jeff Fishman of Amherst. He also leaves grandchildren, Liam, Caitlin, and Isabella Killion, and Hannah, Eliza, and Gabriel Fishman, along with great-grandchildren, August, Siena, and Matilda. He also leaves behind his sister, Mary Miller of Essex, CT, who was very helpful during his illness, and three generations of nieces and nephews, from Europe, across the Americas to New Zealand. His wife of 66 years, Joan E. (Berthiaume), died in 2019. Bill was born Liam J. Killion in New Haven, CT, December 9th, 1929, the son of the late William V. and Jane C. (Sheehan) Killion. He grew up in West Haven, graduating from West Haven High in 1947, and from the University of Connecticut in 1951. After college, he served in the 445th Military Government Company of the Army Reserve. In 1952, he co-founded, with his brother Tom, Thermal Acoustics. The interior and specialty contracting firm operated as a family business until his son, Mark's retirement in 2018. When working in the construction industry, Bill served on the Board of Directors of the Associated General Contractors of CT. Bill's strongest avocation was found with the maritime world. He first came to Plum Island, as a baby, in 1930, and as a young boy, began an informal apprenticeship with the island's lighthouse keeper, Harry B. Dobbins, of the U.S. Lighthouse Service. Cap Dobbins taught Bill the ways of the sea--rowing, sculling, fishing, sailing, navigation, and marlinespike seamanship--as well as lighthouse-keeping duties. Some 70 years later, Bill, discussing his tutelage under Captain Dobbins, stated, "You might have described my position as one of unpaid intern, but, in fact, the pay was excessive." The confidence and skill Bill gained from his time with Cap'n Dobbins sustained him for the rest of his life. One of Bill's prized possessions was the U.S. Government-issued ID card he carried from the age of 13, that allowed him to fish and boat on the Merrimack River during the heightened security of World War ii. He was amused when, some 40 years later, this document was accepted to gain entrance when working a construction job at a Connecticut defense contract facility. With his brother Tom, there was a brief foray into commercial tuna fishing. He sailed and cruised along the east coast and throughout the North Atlantic. His travels took him from the Great Lakes and Canada to the rocky coast of Maine and all of New England. He sailed Long Island Sound to Block Island, and to the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. He eagerly awaited the annual publication of Eldridge Tide and Pilot, to plan voyages! Most of the trips were aboard the 31-foot sloop he built in his side yard. During later trips, he cruised in the West Indies, undertaking a dead-reckoning celestial navigation course out of Bermuda in his 70s. He continued to race sailboats and work at repairing docks well into his 80's. Joan and Bill enjoyed staying at their cottage at Plum Island Point, UCONN basketball, and following the activities of their grandchildren. In retirement, they traveled throughout the US and Europe, visiting family and friends around the world. A vigorous, faithful, patient, humble, and reflective man, of a lively and subtle wit, and a notable attention to detail, Bill's other interests included the arts and architecture, reading, surveying the US and world scene, and following the stock market. The family is heartbroken with the loss of as loving, strong, and benevolent a patriarch a family could hope to have. We will miss him profoundly. Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday June 24th at W.S. Clancy Funeral Home, 244 North Main St., Branford, CT. A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday June 25th at St. Mary Church, 731 Main St., Branford, where he was a 65-year communicant, at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the charity of your choice.
