Building simple, decent, affordable, and energy efficient homes in 25 communities in Massachusetts. Our homes are kept affordable with the help of volunteers who build the house, the homeowners who put in sweat equity working alongside volunteers, suppliers and professional trades who donate their time and materials and donors who believe in creating a world in which everyone has a decent place to live.
Target demographics: Low income families that are 30-60% of the median income for Fitchburg as set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Volunteers aged 16 and up.
Direct beneficiaries per year: We build/rehab 2-4 homes a year and do 2-4 critical repair/home modification for handicapped access a year.
Geographic areas served: 25 communities in north central Massachusetts
Programs: To be more self-sustaining, our Habitat for Humanity established a ReStore at 637 Lancaster Road in Leominster, MA,. Open to the public, the store sells new and used donated construction materials, hardware, appliances and furniture. Visit us on the web at www.ReStoreNCM.org. This initiative keeps useable materials out of landfills and provides a low-cost alternative for people who wouldn't be able to afford to do renovations or repairs on their own. Proceeds from our ReStore help us build more homes in partnership with families in need.

I started out with Habitat for Humanity as a volunteer. This is a grass roots organization that does not give away homes. Homeowners put in hundreds of sweat equity hours building their own homes alongside volunteers and they are committed to their families, their neighborhood and their community. Habitat says they give a hand up, not a hand out, and it's true.
