HomeAid Partners with Walmart for Green Retrofit to Help Decatur Cooperative Ministry
By Matt Hoots

HomeAid Atlanta recently completed an energy efficiency retrofit at a Decatur home operated by Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM), a nonprofit organization serving homeless families in the Decatur/DeKalb area. The project was the first of its kind as part of a new national Environmental Sustainability Program launched by HomeAid Atlanta's parent organization, HomeAid America, and funded by a grant from the Walmart Foundation.

 

HomeAid Atlanta partnered with WellHome, an affiliate of Masco Home Services, to complete the green, energy saving upgrades at the home. In addition, GE Appliances and Lighting provided new, more efficient appliances. It is estimated that these improvements will reduce the home's energy use by at least 40 percent, allowing DCM to focus more of its funding on direct client services, like counseling, job training and financial education.

 

Special thanks to the Walmart Foundation and the following partners for making this project a great success: Builders II, Edwards Heating & Air, GE Appliances & Lighting, O'Dwyer Homes, Redmont Homes, SawHorse and WellHome.
