The Family-to-Family Furnace Fund is one of two major initiatives of the Mountain Housing Opportunities Emergency Home Repair program. Contributions to the Family-to-Family Furnace Fund help to cover the costs of repairing or replacing furnaces for Buncombe County homeowners who have low or very low income and special needs, or single parents and families with young children.
The Family-To-Family Furnace Fund does not provide heating fuel assistance. There are other great organizations in the community that provide this service and help homeowners who need fuel assistance. MHO primarily focuses on providing homeowners with a safe, efficient heat source by either repairing the furnace or replacing it if that’s more cost effective.
To qualify, the total gross household income must be 50% or less of Buncombe County median income, and they must own the home they live in.
If you or someone you know needs an application to see if you qualify to receive assistance from the Family-To-Family Furnace Fund, please call 828-254-4030 and one will be mailed to you immediately.
If you would like to make a contribution to help keep your friends and neighbors warm in the cold months of the year, you can mail a tax-deductible check to MHO, 64 Clingman Avenue, Suite 101, Asheville, NC 28801. You can also make a credit card donation online here.
