With the arrival of the heating season, we are getting the word out about assistance options for needy families.

The Heat And Warmth Fund, THAW, is an independent non-profit agency that provides low-income individuals and families with emergency energy assistance and advocates for long-term energy solutions.

Since its inception, $102 million in assistance has been distributed to more than 155,000 Michigan households, including elderly, unemployed, underemployed, and disabled individuals who found themselves in temporary crisis.

During the 2010-2011 heating season, THAW distributed $11.7 million in energy assistance to more than 12,000 Michigan families in need.
