Heading off the snowball effect of heating costs.
Our cold winters present another risk factor for homelessness, as fuel costs can break a family’s budget. An emergency fuel payment can help relieve financial pressure so a family can make critical payments, like rent, while their home stays warm. Through our Warm Thy Neighbor program, Tedford Housing raises funds each winter to provide one-time, emergency heating assistance to extremely low-income families and individuals in the community. Visit our Get Help page for additional details and to determine if you qualify for this program
