WIN offers several programs and services that help families and individuals achieve their dreams of homeownership and more financially stable.
Our Energy Education programs teach people how to reduce their energy consumption, helping them save money on utility bills and reducing costs associated with repair and replacement of furnaces, AC units, and other major appliances. Our energy auditors also provide information about resources available to low-income residents and seniors who need weatherization and energy assistance to stay in their homes and stay warm through the winter.
