Storm Window Inserts 

Interior storm window inserts help to reduce drafts and keep your home warm. Inserts are removable and can be used each year. The window inserts are built specifically for your windows. A team of volunteers will take window measurements and install them after they are built.

Weatherization

On average low- income families spend 30% of their income on energy costs, often times making the costs of upgrades and repairs out of reach. Weatherization upgrades help to lower energy costs by creating a more energy efficient home. Services can include: pipe insulation, new storm doors, caulking and pipe insulation

Aging in Place

Aging in place modifications allow seniors to age safely and comfortably in their homes.

Aginig in place modifications can include: installing grab bars and hand rails, adding lever door handles, doorbells, raised toilet seats and step repair
