One of my favorite organizations (H.O.M.E. – Housing Opportunities & Maintenance for the Elderly) is looking for seniors to help (again!) They are seeking referrals of low-income senior homeowners for their free weatherization program. Referred clients should meet these criteria:
• Own their own home
• Reside south of North Avenue within the city of Chicago
• Windows in home are low-quality and/or not thermal- or double-paned
• Senior lacks resources to obtain weatherization services on their own
Volunteers who are trained and supervised by H.O.M.E. staff will perform the work.
Due to the last-minute (and very welcome!) availability of a large volunteer group, they still have spaces for weatherization calls on Saturday, January 6
They of course are also welcoming referrals for future weatherization service.
Referrals may be made to either Mike Wren or Eric Samuels at 773-921-3200.
How cool (or warm?) is that?
