    Spring Defined
    By - Ron Bannister - Development Manager

    Hot Cocoa by the Hearth
    By - Jared Paben - Development Associate
    For many of us, the shortening days herald cozy evenings in front of the fire while sipping a hot chocolate. Many of us have a warm home waiting to rescue us from the cold. But some of our neighbors dread the season. As the sunny days turn to dark and rain, our phone lines at HEAT Oregon have been busier. The calls are from...
