For agencies working to help low-income residents in Minnesota, every dollar matters. What these agencies do not spend on their own energy needs can be used to help clients with weatherization and efficiency projects. And when they invest in energy efficiency projects they lead by example. Clients who see agencies walk the walk, to borrow a cliché, are more inclined to follow the agency’s lead.
Located in Central Minnesota, Mahube-Otwa Community Action Partnership is one of those agencies leading the way.
It provides services such as Head Start, family development and housing, early learning scholarships, senior, and energy programs in the Mahnomen, Hubbard, Becker, Otter Tail, and Wadena counties.
