Local donations, United Way of Kosciusko County, Kosciusko County Community Foundation, and K21 Health Foundation fund this local program. The program is open to all residents of the county of low to moderate income and those in crisis that are in need of essential components to keep their home habitable and safe. The program funds items such as furnaces, water heaters, septic and waste disposal systems, and electrical upgrades.
Oftentimes, local contractors donate materials at their cost or do the work at a reduced rate. The program is also set up as a revolving loan fund, so families may pay a portion of the work done during the affordability period. It is the goal of Housing Opportunities of Warsaw (HOW) that this program will become perpetual on its own over time.
