Aigburth-Vale goes Solar
GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic, a non-profit organization that makes solar power and job training accessible to under-served communities, and volunteers from Constellation energy installed a 90kw cost-saving solar energy system at Aigburth Vale last week.
The Solar System is part of a comprehensive renovation to preserve Aigburth Vale as affordable housing for seniors. Check out our blog for more pictures from the event!
Last year, NeighborWorks America released the findings of its third annual consumer finance survey. Chief among them is the alarming fact that nearly a third of adult Americans (29 percent) have no emergency savings. And according to CFED, here in Baltimore, over half of households don't have adequate emergency savings.
This month on the St. Ambrose blog, we highlighted 5 tips to help you create an emergency savings fund today. Emergencies are upsetting enough, by saving for a "rainy day" you can ensure emergencies don't become financial catastrophes as well!
The mission of St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center is to create, preserve and maintain equal housing opportunities for low and moderate income people, primarily in Baltimore City, and to encourage and support strong and diverse neighborhoods.
