Birmingham, Alabama (Feb. 26, 2022) — Neighborhood Housing Services of Birmingham, Inc. (NHS Birmingham) is receiving a $5,000 grant from Spire to support its Healthy Housing Initiative program, which provides weatherization upgrades for local low-income residents. Weatherization protects the home’s interior from outside elements to help reduce the cost of heating and cooling bills, while addressing key health and safety issues within the home.
Joe Hampton, president of Spire Alabama, Gulf Coast, and Mississippi shared, “At Spire, we take pride in our ability to support and uplift families in the communities we serve. This is why I’m excited that we’ve partnered with the Neighborhood Housing Services of Birmingham in an effort to support their Healthy Housing Initiative. We care for the families we serve, and want to ensure all of our customers have a safe and healthy place to call home.”
“We are incredibly thankful for Spire’s gift that helps us provide much needed weatherization upgrades to the homes of some of those most in need in our community,” said Kelleigh Gamble, NHS Birmingham’s CEO. “The overarching goals of this program are to support current homeowners as they strive to both stay in and maintain the homes they own. Energy efficiency and weatherization measures not only improve indoor air quality, safety, and comfort, but are also proven to lower energy bills for low-income households.”
