Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Through volunteer labor and taxdeductible donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts builds and rehabilitates simple, decent housing with the help of partner homeowners. Habitat homes are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable 0% interest mortgages. The homeowners’ monthly payments are recycled into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses. Homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor to build their home and the homes of others.
Our Critical Home Repair Program (CHR) is a home preservation program that provides needed interior and exterior repairs for low-income homeowners, so that they may maintain a safe, decent, and affordable place to live. This program focuses on safety, security, accessibility, weatherization, and keeping houses up to city codes. Through project management oversight which typically includes volunteer labor, Habitat will assist families with completing home repairs. The Critical Home Repair Program is designed to provide a hand up, not a hand out, to homeowners who are in need such that they may feel proud and dignified about the place they call home.
