As of Fall 2018, we are currently building a new home in Sharon, Vermont, for a family of five.
The Cayer family was pushed out of their apartment due to unaffordable rent and have been living with family friends. Zack Cayer works at GW Plastics and Mindy is self-employed. The couple has three children.
To learn more about the Cayers, please read this August 2018 Valley News article.
We are also renovating an existing Habitat home in Lebanon for the Hammonds, a family of three who will move into their new home before Thanksgiving 2018.
In 2014, we began a Neighborhood Revitalization program in Claremont, New Hampshire. The project began within a section of town bounded by Central, Pleasant, Prospect and Mulberry Streets and in 2018 was expanded to include the whole city. Funded by the NH Housing Finance Authority (NHHFA), homeowners can apply through us for assistance with home repairs.
We are currently looking for Claremont residents to help develop a local Claremont Habitat chapter to empower Claremont residents and families to create a thriving community through local leadership, outreach, and guidance.
We are also working with existing Claremont groups and officials to form a lead abatement program to serve the community.
