Stream Energy is a company that hires independent contractors to carry out their mission of signing up new clients for their services. As easy as that may sound, it takes more than just merely getting a consumer to sign up for a service. In fact, contractors are selected based on their want to carry on the mission of Stream Energy. They are responsible for meeting with clients, getting to know their needs through conversation and then matching them with the product that works best for them. Some of the products offered are cellular phone plans, telemedicine, and fixed-rate energy. All of these products can enhance the quality of life for a client. Fixed-rate energy prevents a customer from every having to overpay for their energy bill. Telemedicine gives patients the ability to discuss their symptoms online and receive a prescription online as well. Discounted phone plans can make a big difference as well as in most cases they offer the same features as the bigger companies but charge less. That is only one way that Stream Energy helps its clients. It also owns Stream Cares, a philanthropy organization that aims to enhance as many lives as possible across the country. The organization also partners with the Salvation Army and the Hope Supply company to help those individuals living on the streets. Homelessness and natural disaster are two primary causes for Stream Energy. Its associates focus greatly on keeping track of homelessness rates to ensure that everyone has all of the supplies they need to live safely during their circumstances. Recently there has been a 24 percent increase in the rate of homelessness in the Dallas area. Associates at Stream Energy chose to use that as fuel to give homeless children an all-expense paid day at the local waterpark. Stream partnered with the Hope Supply Co. to help them sponsor the Splash for Hope event. The event gives more than 1,000 children the ability to have fun, meet other children, and worry less about their circumstances. Giving the children experiences that they will never forget is priceless. It also helps the parents out as they are unable to afford the experience for their children.
