Meet the Andujar Family!

Mom Iris and her son Nathaniel have lived on the West Side of Buffalo for decades. Two years ago, they were able to purchase a home that they had rented years earlier. The first winter revealed a leaking roof which they were unable to afford to repair. Too many of our neighbors have similar issues, structural repair needs that are beyond their budget, and that sadly keep them from accessing energy efficiency programs. The folks that could benefit most from energy efficiency are left out. So, we created the Warm & Dry on the West Side Initiative!

For the Andujar's, we were able to use our funding to repair the roof and other structural issues, and then we worked with them to access weatherization, appliance upgrades and insulation through NYSERDA. Now cold rooms and drafts are a thing of the past, and they are living greener, healthier and more sustainably. Not only that, helping homeowners stay in their homes makes our community stable and healthy. When you factor in the value of reducing our carbon footprint and creating good paying green jobs - it's a win-win-win!
