Share warmth.

Every winter, many Vermonters face dangerously low home temperatures because they cannot pay their fuel or utility bills. For more than 35 years the Warmth Support Program at the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO) has helped our neighbors in need pay for their home heating fuel and basic electrical needs during the cold weather months. With over $5 million in donations collected, nearly 92,000 emergency disbursements have been provided to help families and individuals across Vermont.

Our dedicated Warmth Support Program staff offer wraparound services to households, and provide essential information and counseling to help individuals and families avoid crisis in the future. Due to the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, the housing crisis, and soaring inflation, we expect an increase in calls for help with fuel bills this winter.

The Warmth Support Program depends on your generosity. Together, we can support our most vulnerable neighbors in need throughout the winter. Consider a monthly donation to sustain critical support.
