What is Warm Your Heart?
As a community action agency, MVAC seeks out the gaps within our communities and fills that gap.
Warm Your Heart is MVAC’s annual fundraiser that consists of tasting the best and most unique soups from around southern Minnesota, silent and live auction and ends with live entertainment.
This will be the second year that Warm Your Heart proceeds will benefit the “We Care” micro loan home repair loan.
This program is just getting underway. “We Care” home repair provides loans under $2,000 to households that make under $34,000. These loans can be extended for up to 3 years with minimum payments of $25. Keeping their home in good repair or updating the home to provide accessibility for health reasons is essential to allow them to live at home. Statistically, it is far more economical to keep a person in their home rather than move them to an assisted living residence. This program allows them to rest easy and fix the problem before it gets too critical.
By having these low repayment options, households have affordable payments while making sure the program becomes self-sustaining.
