Everyone needs a safe and affordable place to live. We help people find affordable housing, maintain their utility bills and stay in their home longer. We also partner with our local communities and neighborhoods to find ways to make them safer and better places for people to live.
In an expensive state like New Jersey, where you live can be one of the most challenging problems. We are committed to helping people find and maintain affordable housing. Our array of Homelessness Prevention services provide eviction counseling and financial assistance to prevent homelessness. In Warren, our Homeless Hotline focuses on securing a safe place to stay for those in need. Once stable, we work with participants to build their savings and guide them toward homeownership. We also maintain a subsidized housing complex.
Energy & Safety
Our Energy Assistance team has helped hundreds of people cover the ever rising cost of utility payments. To lower utility costs, we also offer free home energy audits and home improvements through our Weatherization Services , making homes more energy efficient Beyond ensuring home efficiency, we place a heavy focus on safety improvements to ensure seniors remain safe and independent in their homes as long as possible.
In addition to individual services, we deploy place-based strategies to make the neighborhoods and communities in which we live and work more effective. Many of our communities have suffered from economic disinvestment, rising crime rates and crumbling infrastructure. We support municipalities in producing economic development, community policing efforts and neighborhood revitalization. By strategically partnering with local community organizations such as law enforcement, Norwescap works toward creating a safer and more engaged community. The Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation project is just one example of our partnership with the Phillipsburg Police Department and the community to work towards an effective and thriving community.
