City of Amarillo - Family Support Services
After losing its headquarters to a fire, Family Support Services, an important nonprofit serving Amarillo, will upgrade its new headquarters, a 1960s office building with $1.2M for energy efficiency and water conservation upgrades. Jim Womack, CEO of Family Support Services said: “TX-PACE has provided us with the opportunity to rebuild the energy infrastructure of our soon-to-be home office building to be more energy efficient and much more economical. We expect to see savings on utility costs of close to $100,000 annually. As a nonprofit agency, the importance of this cannot be overstated - it will help ensure that we will be able to continue to provide services for many years to come. Dub Taylor and the TX-PACE staff were all great to work with and were extremely helpful in guiding us through the application process."
