The Taking Energy Measures Personally = $avings (TEMP$) program is an annual one day event in which teams of CASA volunteers weatherize the homes of clients by putting plastic on windows, insulating pipes, caulking breaches, installing smoke detectors, replacing storm doors and performing other small repairs.
The success of this program depends entirely on the support of our local community. With more and more volunteers working every year, we have been able to provide additional services such as yard work and wheelchair ramp painting. CASA client’s benefit not only from the home improvements, but also from the camaraderie and personal attention paid them by our volunteers!
