Low-income housing organizations in Worcester, Massachusetts contend with multiple challenges, as they endeavor to provide safe and comfortable homes for people in need and meet the energy demands of their facilities. The goal of our project was to work with Dismas House of Massachusetts and the Worcester Green Low-Income Housing Coalition (WGLIHC) to promote sustainability and reduce the amount of money spent on energy. We conducted a case study analysis of Dismas House in order to understand its energy reduction process, rationale, and results. Then, we created an energy reduction blueprint from our case study findings. Our blueprint includes recommendations for reducing energy usage and costs so that WGLIHC members retain more funds to improve their programs and change lives.
