|No family who qualifies is turned away. But they may have to wait for funding to become available before we can address their furnace needs. Some furnaces can be repaired for as little as $500; others must be replaced for as much as $5,000.
Janice is 65 and lives in a mobile home with her 33 year-old disabled daughter in Arden. Space heaters were their only way to keep warm for the past three years. MHO was able to install a new heat pump for Janice’s family. Thanks to your donations, Janice and her daughter can live in a safe, warm home this winter.
Robert is 75 and lives in a condominium in Asheville. His upstairs toilet started leaking onto his furnace and shorted out an electric panel. Before he called Mountain Housing Opportunities, he was without heat for several weeks. Thanks to your donations, MHO’s Emergency Home Repair program was able to repair Robert’s furnace. He won’t have to worry about being cold again!
This year, MHO already has 71 REQUESTS for Emergency Home Repair assistance and we need to ask for your help. Can you help us meet our goal to raise $50,000 to help 25 families stay warm this winter?
You can make a tax deductible donation online at www.mtnhousing.org. Thank you for your support and generous help this winter! Together, we can warm hearts and homes.
