1 Dear Homeowner, AC for Seniors/Cool Down St. Louis- Jefferson County Air Conditioner Application 3875 Plass Road, Bldg. A Phone: Dennis Murphy x106 Phone: Tom Rojas x112 Fax: Website: Each summer when funds are available, Hammers of Hope conducts two initiatives, AC for Seniors and Cool Down St. Louis-Jefferson County, to give window air conditioning units to low income families, seniors, and persons with disabilities to provide a safe place of heat relief in at least one room of their residence. Hammers of Hope is a nonprofit volunteer program that brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners. The mission of Hammers of Hope is to assist those who do not have the means or ability to make home repairs themselves, particularly homeowners who are over the age of 60 or individuals with disabilities. Applicants must currently live in Jefferson County, and only residents located within Jefferson County are eligible to apply. The attached application MUST be signed by the homeowner(s), completed and turned in with all proof of income documents that apply to you and those who live in your home. A check list of documents needed has been provided. Please understand that returning the application or a visit to your home by someone from Hammers of Hope does NOT mean you will be accepted into the program. If you are selected to receive a window unit, volunteers will deliver and install the unit for you. You must sign a Hold Harmless Agreement and once the unit is delivered it becomes your property. Hammers of Hope would like to help everyone who needs assistance, but funding resources and volunteers dictate how many homeowners we can assist. Unfortunately not everyone who applies to the program will be able to get assistance. The back of this letter contains the income guidelines and a check list of documents that MUST be returned with your application. Incomplete applications and those returned without the required documents listed above, may disqualify you for consideration for the AC units. You will be notified by letter whether if you have been selected by Hammers of Hope to receive the AC unit. As stated, to receive services, homeowner(s) must be willing to sign a Hold Harmless Agreement protecting the partnering agencies and their volunteers from any cause of action, claim, loss, demand, or suit arising from or related to: the presence of any Hammers of Hope Affiliate on or about the premises, any services provided by any Hammers of Hope Affiliate; negligence or any damages to personal or real property; or any injuries sustained by the homeowner, family members, or friends. This Hold Harmless Agreement shall serve as a waiver that your story and any pictures taken can be used for fundraising, volunteer recruitment and promotional purposes.. If you have any questions, call , extension 106 or 112 and leave a detailed message. Sincerely, Dennis Murphy Program Manager A program of JCCP Created P:\Departments\CC-HOH\Applications
