Weatherizing For Winter Where It's Needed Most

January 22, 2007


Keeping warm has nearly become a full-time job in Colorado this winter, and local charities are coming together to make sure facilities that bring the needy in from the cold are properly weatherized. Shelley Wallace with Energy Outreach Colorado has been working on the project to improve shelters and other non-profit facilities.

"The majority are facilities that house people coming out of homelessness, people coming out of domestic violence situations or youth who are living on the streets as well."

She explains many shelters have been converted from old houses that need a lot of work.

"We look into their wall cavities and we realize there's no insulation or that they're operating on really old appliances and furnaces."

Wallace adds that they need additional funding to expand the project to rural areas in the state.

The project has had support from The Denver Foundation, The Daniels Fund, Xcel Energy Foundation, The Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation, and Mile High United Way as well as Energy Outreach Colorado. To get involved or donate, call 303-825-8750.
