Community Homeworks Receives Outstanding Service Award for Second Consecutive Year

KALAMAZOO, MI, MARCH 21, 2014 – Consumers Energy has recognized Community Homeworks for outstanding service on behalf of energy efficiency for a second consecutive year.

The award is for unparalleled commitment to serving Michigan’s income-eligible population through outstanding energy efficiency achievements while participating in the 2013 Consumers Energy Helping Neighbors Program. Community Homeworks is one of only two recipients of the award this year and the only recipient in West Michigan.

By assisting residents with home modifications such as weatherization, energy-efficient electrical upgrades, and water saving measures, Community Homeworks creates permanent utility savings for income-qualified families across Kalamazoo County. These savings can make a transformational difference in their lives by freeing up limited resources for other critical living expenses, such as food, medical costs, and school supplies. This creates a stronger community overall by fostering economic growth and increased property values.

“Our focus is to help families to become sustainable” says Executive Director, Shaun Wright. “We are so thankful for the continued partnership with Consumers Energy to help meet this goal and we are honored to receive this award for the second year in a row.”

The Consumers Energy Helping Neighbors Program provides whole house weatherization, energy efficiency services and education to Michigan residents. Families working within the program at Community Homeworks could see as much as 60 percent savings in their monthly utility costs. The program is part of Community Homeworks’ comprehensive package of solutions that empower struggling families to maintain safe, sustainable, and dignified homes. To learn more about their services or opportunities to be involved, call Community Homeworks at 269-998-3275 or visit www.communityhomeworks.org.
