Warm Hearts Warm Homes
In 2005, Governor Schweitzer launched his call to service through the Warm Hearts Warm Homes Initiative. He asked citizens, businesses, churches, civic organizations, youth groups, and schools to buddy up with a neighbor, relative, or someone who may need assistance getting ready for winter.
AmeriCorps programs have joined in with Warm Hearts Warm Homes by weatherizing homes for those in need.
Since 2005, over 600 AmeriCorps members serving with the Montana Conservation Corps have weatherized over 7,800 homes in Montana. Since 2009, 23 AmeriCorps members serving with Montana Energy Corps have weatherized over 500 homes.
Look for the Montana Conservation Corps crews out across the state the last two weeks of October and Energy Corps crews starting in November.
