Local Nonprofit Seeks Weatherization Clients in N. Ky. | News
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - People Working Cooperatively (PWC), a local nonprofit that provides critical home repair, weatherization, modification and maintenance services to help residents stay safely in their homes, is actively seeking weatherization clients in Northern Kentucky.
With October as National Weatherization Month, it’s a busy season for PWC’s weatherization program but the nonprofit typically has a low number of requests for work in Northern Kentucky.
“We are looking to better inform Northern Kentucky homeowners and renters of PWC’s weatherization services,” said Nina Creech, vice president of Operations at PWC. “We have the capacity to serve these Kentucky homeowners and renters and can provide them with services to greatly reduce their energy usage, which means a great deal during cold winter weather.”
Weatherization services include an energy audit, furnace cleaning and tuning, carbon monoxide check, and installation of weatherization materials when appropriate. In many cases, PWC can help reduce home energy expenditures by as much as 20 percent, PWC staff also provide simple do-it-yourself tips to clients to help them minimize the colder weather’s effect on local residents’ energy usage.
To see if you’re eligible for PWC’s weatherization services, call (513) 351-7921. For more information on People Working Cooperatively, visit www.pwchomerepairs.org.
Incorporated in 1975, People Working Cooperatively (PWC) is a non-profit organization serving low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners in 20 counties of Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Indiana.
