Emergency Heating Assistance – Warm Thy Neighbor


Each winter, Tedford Housing raises funds to provide one-time, emergency heating assistance to extremely low-income families and individuals in Brunswick, Bowdoin, Bowdoinham, Topsham, Harpswell, Lisbon, Lisbon Falls and Durham through the Warm Thy Neighbor program.

During the winter months of 2015-2016, generous donors made it possible for us to deliver over $24,000 worth of fuel to 110 households that included 231 individuals. If you would like to support the Warm Thy Neighbor fund, visit our Donation page and indicate that you would like your gift directed to the privately funded fuel assistance fund.

If you are looking for heating assistance, visit our Get Help page for additional details and to determine if you qualify for this program. Volunteers start meeting with applicants in the beginning of December. Applicants can call 207-729-1161 #115 to set up an appointment starting the last week of November.
