Linda Allen had given up.

She couldn’t keep her 40-year-old Bainbridge Island cabin warmer than 50 degrees in the winter.

"They gave me back my home," she said.

That's 45 percent of the group's ambitious goal of reaching 4,000 homes, or half the island's households.  Read more on this story in the March 15 edition of the Bainbridge Island Review.
