Housing, Energy & Emergency Services

workers building a house.

Help around the home and a life support system for people in crisis.

We ease the strains on the family housing budget by providing assistance with monthly bills and repairs, and by converting drafty, inefficient dwellings into warm, energy-conserving money savers. We’re also a life support system, helping to prevent homelessness and providing basic human needs for families going through difficult times, as well as those who can’t stretch their own resources any further.


For more information about free energy improvements through the South County Community Action Agency's Weatherization Program, call 789-3016 ext. 2300.
