Thankfully, this winter is not nearly as severe as last year, but the season still carries a chill.
Assistance with winter heating costs is one of ADFAC's most requested services. Our SAFE and ASSIST programs, which operate November through March, exist for the sole purpose of providing local families with short-term aid to maintain essential utility service during the coldest months.
Last year, over 800 families received help, and the need for assistance remains high in 2015 - especially as we work to bring assistance to those in rural Anderson County through our satellite offices in Clinton and Rocky Top.
If you would like to help a family stay warm this winter, please visit our utilities page for more information.
The talented two person staff of ADFAC's Affordable Housing program has been busy mapping out nearly 50 home repair projects to be completed in 2015.
Projections currently include 10 "Rebuild and Recover" repairs in Kingston, 7 major home rehabilitations in Anderson and Morgan counties, 10 elderly repair projects in Oak Ridge and approximately 20 volunteer repair projects this summer.
