MCCAC's new Weatherization Coordinator

 Bob DeRocher has been hired as the new Weatherization Coordinator this summer taking over for Steve Bishop who retired a few months ago.

Bob has been working as the SSVF Veterans Coordinator helping Veterans who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless. During the past couple of years Bob has helped over 63 Veterans find or keep their housing. 

Bob has been attending trainings and acquiring energy related certificates for his position. We look forward to Bob getting out and weatherizing as many homes as possible.

Currently our Weatherization waiting list is very short so the wait time on the list is good.

Weatherization services are available for both homeowners and renters (landlords do have to give us permission)
