City Partners With Local Businesses for Windows of Opportunity Project
On Saturday, Feb. 26, Home on Woodrow Street Will Get New Windows

The City of Arlington provides critical housing services to assist qualified homeowners. The Housing Rehabilitation Program and Weatherization Assistance Program help homeowners bring their dwellings up to local building standards and improve energy efficiency.

Sometimes a house needs more repairs than can be completed within program resources, said Interim Community Services Director David Zappasodi.

Thanks to the generosity of two local businesses, a home at 811 Woodrow St. 76012 will receive new windows. Installation will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 26.

In November, a number of weatherization improvements were completed at the home, including the installation of new doors, attic and wall insulations, and roof vent replacements.

About the Windows of Opportunity Project

For the second consecutive year, Brennan Enterprises, an Arlington remodeling company, and NT Windows, a Fort Worth-based window manufacturer have collaborated with the City to donate and install replacement windows in the homes of low income homeowners.

Kerry Brennan of Brennan Enterprises and Ryon Ray from NT Windows recently shared the good news with the homeowner, who was thrilled that her home was selected to be a part of the “Windows of Opportunity Project.” For information about City of Arlington housing programs and services, visit http://www.arlingtontx.gov/housing  or e-mail Nicolette.Arceneaux@arlingtonhousing.us.  Homeowners can also call 817-276-6740.
