It’s cold outside and too many people are going through hard times, whether it’s the economy or a breakdown of a marriage or health issues, etc. Vanden Heuvel & Dineen, S.C., wants to make sure that you are aware of some of the options available to you:
1. Keep warm this winter with Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance (WHEAP). You may be eligible for energy assistance. Each Wisconsin county has a different contact, but in Washington County contact the Human Services Client Registration at 262-335-4677 for an appointment in West Bend, Germantown or Hartford.
2. Do you need a smoke alarm for your home? Do you need help replacing the batteries in your smoke alarm? If you need a smoke alarm with a long-lasting battery, you may qualify for a free smoke alarm through the West Bend Fire Department at 262-335-5055.
Help is on the way. Don’t be afraid to call or ask for assistance.
