Mission Statement

WARM unites people of compassion to rebuild homes and restore hope for our low-income neighbors, many of whom are elderly or disabled, and enables them to live safely and independently in their own homes and communities.

Description

Founded in 1996 by the Wilmington District United Methodist Church, WARM, Inc. is a local, grassroots movement built on the Christian values of service, compassion, and unity. Service not only impacts the homeowner in need, but enriches the lives of those serving. Compassion motivates our volunteers and other supporters to engage in the life-changing work that WARM carries out. Unity in that all people of compassion are invited to join us in this mission and all very low income homeowners are invited to apply, regardless of personal creed, ethnicity, or background.

Every year, WARM, Inc. organizes over 500 local and out-of-town volunteers to complete vital repairs for an average of 60 low income homeowners, whose income falls 50% below the median for their county. In many cases, we help the residents stay in their homes. The average cost of repairs is $3,500-$4,000 per home. Over 80% of our homeowners are elderly widows and over 30% are disabled.

WARM, Inc. provides meaningful work that changes lives in a setting that encourages group unity, spiritual enrichment, and a sense of satisfaction that comes only from helping others.
