A Successful Summer
Northwestern Ohio Community Action Commission is pleased to announce that the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was a great success again this summer. The SFSP provides healthy nutritious meals to children when school is not in session. A total of 17,110 meals were served to 2,384 children. Thirteen sites were open in five counties: Defiance (5), Fulton (2), Henry (2), Paulding (1) and Williams (3).
NOCAC would like to thank our 926 volunteers who donated a combined total of 3,481 hours to ensure the success of this program!!
The goal for the NOCAC Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP) is to achieve results in energy savings for income eligible individuals by providing energy-related home repairs and other modifications to their homes. We work to make homes safe, comfortable and energy efficient.
NOCAC provides services in the six county area which includes Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, Van Wert and Williams counties.
HWAP benefits the community with trained crews to reduce energy consumption and provide client education. Our weatherization technicians use diagnostic technologies such as the blower door and an energy audit to determine the most cost effective measures for each home.
Bridges Out of Poverty Training
Have you ever wondered "Why don't they just get a job?"? Have you ever said "They buy pop, candy, and junk food instead of food that's good for them."? Do you ever look at the tattoos, nails being done, hair looks great and instantly wonder "How do they pay for that when they don't pay their bills?"? This training will touch on those questions, thoughts, and so much more.
The Bridges Out of Poverty Training is a 6 hour class that will dive directly into the world of those who are in poverty touching on many topics. Topics include the mental models of different classes, causes of poverty, hidden rules of economic classes, language barriers, and resources needed for success.
