HeatShare Fast Facts
HeatShare is a Salvation Army program that provides emergency utility assistance for
people with no place left to turn. Funds are used to pay for energy costs for seniors,
disabled and families in crisis. The program has been active since 1982 and helped
4200 families in Minnesota last year with $1 million in assistance. HeatShare is offered
at The Salvation Army operation center in Austin. To learn about HeatShare and The

HeatShare is a last resort for people Who've exhausted all other private and government
assistance programs. Although HeatShare does not receive government funding, the
amount of government funds available for other heating assistance programs directly
impacts HeatShare. When funding for these other programs runs out, more people need
HeatShare. Call 1-507-437-4566 to see if you qualify.
