Our sincere thanks go out to John J. Korp, Associate Director at NORWESCAP, and everyone in their Housing and Energy Services Department. They helped us in providing much needed energy conservation measures to the Family Promise Day Center located in the Resource Center of the Oxford Second Presbyterian Church. 

The structure is a beautiful two story wood frame house that was built in 1873, formerly used as the church "manse." The building is solid and well built, but following a professional energy audit, it was discovered that the heat loss was "phenomenal.” 

Thanks to our friends at NORWESCAP’s Housing and Energy Services, we were able to have 6 inches of insulation blown into the sidewalls and attic floor and also replacement of the primary windows.

Not only will this reduce our energy expenses, but it will increase the seasonal comfort for the families and children who are helped through our Family Promise/Interfaith Hospitality Network. This help was possible because of our mission as an emergency housing and homelessness assistance provider. At today’s oil prices, this could not have come at a better time! 

On behalf of the families and children we serve, some of the most vulnerable folks in Warren County, we thank you!
