Warm Up The Winter: Fuel Crisis 2024
Annual Campaign and Concert
Our annual campaign supports our neighbors needing emergency assistance for fuel, utility, rental payments, and emergency accommodation. With the length of our waitlist reaching nearly 400 households and fuel and utility costs skyrocketing, the need this year is greater than ever! Help your neighbors now by donating to the fund and buying tickets to annual Warm Up The Winter Concert on March 7.
Yes, In Our Backyard
A “small but mighty” non-profit founded in 1969, Construct is composed of a staff of twelve who work to serve over six hundred families annually in southern Berkshire County. Currently, we have over ninety permanent housing units, a transitional housing program for individuals coming out of homelessness, and the county’s first co-living workforce housing option that shelters local workers in need of temporary housing in a converted, fully furnished inn. In addition to providing these affordable housing options, Construct has established several funds for rental assistance, utility assistance, transportation services for our transitional housing population, and temporary emergency shelter services.
