Last month, 77% of the calls made to 211 Maine were related to heating assistance. There is no doubt that the high cost of heating has hit many households extra hard this year. All donations to our Fuel Assistance Fund will be distributed to organizations assisting local residents in need of a little extra help with heating this year.
Thousands of Mainers are faced with choosing between heating their homes and basic needs like food and medicine.
Each year, HoMEUW along with the United Ways of Maine partners with NEWS CENTER Maine for the Project Heat Telethon. This year the telethon took place on Thursday, January 26th.
