Helping a Family Stay Warm

When the Noram family’s basement flooded with nearly four feet of water, their furnace and water heater were immersed and their furniture, holiday decorations and household items were destroyed. Unfortunately, the family did not have enough money from their Quick Start loan to replace the water heater and furnace. Thankfully, with support from a Midwest Early Recovery Fund grant, Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership was able to give the family hot water and a warm home. They were very grateful.
