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.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help us in our ReStore in Leominster, MA, reach out to faith communities for support, help us coordinate our volunteer schedule, provide photographs of our many activities, get construction materials and supplies ordered, help us select our families and plan programs to ensure their continued success, help us with our fundraising work and ensure our continued success in many other ways too. Someone who had a whole day to volunteer could work at one of our construction sites alongside our homeowner partners and other volunteers.

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.

Mission:
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.

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. ... more »
