What is the goal of PWC's fundraising?

PWC serves clients who have no other resources to make their homes safe and livable. Financial support from members of the community allows PWC to meet the true needs of clients not otherwise met by traditional funding sources.

What services does PWC provide?

PWC helps keep its clients safely in their homes by focusing on critical, not cosmetic, home repairs. The agency’s skilled employees and volunteers also perform energy-saving weatherization and mobility modification services for qualified homeowners.

Who are PWC's clients?

PWC serves very low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners and some renters with home repairs and services. PWC clients must meet income qualifications to be eligible for services.

What is the minimum qualification for assistance?

Qualification guidelines vary by municipality and by funder so it's best to contact PWC for more information. PWC clients must meet very specific income guidelines to be eligible for PWC’s services and programs.

How can I help PWC and their clients?

PWC relies on the generosity of local organizations, corporations, philanthropic groups and individuals. If you are interested in helping restore our neighborhoods and keeping our most vulnerable neighbors safe in their homes, please register as a home repair sponsor, submit a donation or volunteer your time to make an immediate impact on your community.

How can I become a volunteer?

As a registered volunteer, you can be part of PWC’s Volunteer Involvement Program, which hosts numerous volunteer projects benefiting clients in a variety of ways. The program is flexible, allowing volunteers to team up with skilled PWC employees during the week, participate in major PWC events requiring increased support from the community, or even create your own personal schedule.

Volunteers are also invited to attend Home Improvement Day, held on the third Saturday of each month. This special program equips volunteers with the home repair skills they will need to perform various projects at clients’ homes.
