TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Dozens of people have been without heat in Tucson during this latest cold spell.

According to Scott Coverdale with Community Home Repair Projects, the non-profit agency has replaced about 100 furnaces in homes without heat in just the past two weeks.

Repair crews are working as fast as they can to get to people without heat.

Community Home Repair Projects is dedicated to assisting low-income homeowners in Tucson and Pima County. It provides emergency home repairs as well as adaptive and safety modifications for people with disabilities.

The organization partners with other agencies that have an interest in providing these services, as well as with city and county programs, neighborhood associations, religious and civic organizations, health-care providers and the community at large.

The agency's goal is to be accessible to the members of the community that need assistance the most, and strive to meet those needs in a timely and effective manner.
