Through its Team Heat Program, REAL Services helps families stay warm during the winter heating season.
REAL Services' Team Heat Program assists families in St. Joseph County with income up to 250% of the federal poverty guidelines. In partnership with United Way, Team Heat matches up to $75 monthly that participants pay toward their heating bill during the winter months.
With this monthly match, the Team Heat Program helps families achieve their goals while managing their heating costs. Once accepted into the Team Heat Program, participants will work with a Family Development Consultant on a goal plan. Qualifying participants will be asked to apply for LIHEAP (Low Income Heating Assistance Program) and attend a personal financial budgeting class.
