Real Change Happens When We Work Together

We’re happy to share a great example of how our collaborative partnership with Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity is making a real difference – thank you to KVHH for shining a light on this story in their December 2014 newsletter:

Cheryl D.’s Eastside home had suffered some major damage due to an ice dam caused by heat leaking through the roof. Habitat’s Construction Manager, Tom Tishler, referred Cheryl to us.

12641243174_e30e498862_zCommunity Homeworks, Habitat, and Consumers Energy were working on a pilot program to do weatherization projects in partnership with low-income homeowners,” Tishler said. “The timing was perfect.”

Community Homeworks completed the weatherization of Cheryl’s home with grant funding from Consumers Energy. Community Homeworks installed a new furnace and water heater and also insulated the attic and caulked gaps around windows and doors. Habitat followed and repaired damage caused by the ice dam….Cheryl is very pleased with Community Homeworks’ and Habitat’s work.

“I am very happy with the quality of the work they did on my house,” Cheryl said. When the work was done, Tom did a walk through with me and explained everything that was done in detail and answered all my questions. I am anxious to see how the repairs will affect my Consumers bills this winter.”

We are glad we could help and glad to have such great community partners!
