Where We Stand
Program of the Month


Like you, NORWESCAP has been horrified by the events in Charlottesville.  When we were established in 1965, it was out of concern for social justice and overcoming the barriers to poverty.  To see the domestic terrorism, violence and racism perpetrated by hate groups like the neo-Nazis and other white supremacy groups sickens all of us.  It goes against everything we value; access to opportunity, economic success and the dignity of others.  These actions not only threaten people of color, immigrants, Muslims, Jews and others, they threaten the safety and strength of the whole community.  To those that are marginalized and oppressed and for those that fight against this immoral and disgusting behavior, let there be no doubt, NORWESCAP stands firmly with you. 

As soon as Labor Day ends, it seems we here at NORWESCAP are focused on our upcoming Low Income Home Energy and Weatherization programs. If you haven't heard the acronym LIHEAP, or HEA, you are probably not aware of the amazing benefits of these programs that are offered at NORWESCAP or how critical they are to our low income and at risk households who do not have funding to pay for oil, or other energy sources once we leave Labor Day far behind and have to contend with bitter cold temperatures.

The two programs are a great fit with Low Income Home Energy helping low-income residents with their heating and cooling bills and even helping with emergency services.

This program is leveraged with our Weatherization program that provides in many cases, emergency heating system services and also assists elderly, handicapped and low-income persons in weatherizing their homes, to conserve energy and improve heating system efficiency.
