INEZ'S STORY


When Inez’s health, emotional state and home started unraveling, hope was hard to find.

Like many of us, she bought her home intending to make repairs over time. When standing for hours became impossible, she had to quit her job at Wal-Mart and defer her dreams of home repairs.

Last year, when Inez became ill her furnace was found to emit carbon monoxide, so she quit using it. A WCCS Weatherization inspection found that she was heating each room with one small portable heater. Inez’s small house had an oversized furnace that sat in the middle of her living room. The house also had numerous air leaks throughout, as well as inadequate insulation.

Thanks to WCCS, her home was sealed, insulated, and her dryer vented to the outside for moisture control. The old furnace, oil tank, and duct work were removed. With the help of Supportive Services a local grant was awarded to upgrade her home’s electrical system and install baseboard heat.

WCCS Supportive Services encouraged her to enroll for food stamps, which she now receives. In addition, the WCCS E-HEAP (Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program) prevented Inez’s heating service from being disconnected.

“I never dreamed that one organization like WCCS could do so much,” she says. “I stopped feeling sorry for myself when I saw them work so hard for me. My home now provides a much safer environment for me and my grandchildren when I baby-sit. WCCS was an inspiration to me.”
