The Gift of Warmth

The Gift of Warmth

Funded by the tremendous generosity of community partners, faith-based organizations, and individual residents, there is a Gift of Warmth fund available to help Needham residents with overdue utility bills and/or those persons or families at risk of having a utility shut off. 

The Gift of Warmth program is administered by the Needham Health & Human Services Department and is available to any Needham resident in need. Documentation of that need in the form of a final shut-off notice or an overdue utility bill in paper copy is required. To speak with a staff member about the Gift of Warmth program please call the Public Health Division at 781-455-7940 and speak to one of the Public Health Nurses or email publichealthnursing@needhamma.gov, or call the Aging Services Division at 781-855-3629 and speak with one of the Social Workers.
