We build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter.
Who We Are
Ossipee Mountains Habitat for Humanity (OMHFH) serves central New Hampshire. For more than 25 years we have been building new affordable, decent homes for families. Our office is based in Wolfeboro, but our Partner Families reside in Ossipee, Wolfeboro, and Wakefield.
Our volunteers include local people and those who visit the vast array of lakes in the area, including Lake Winnipesaukee. Seasonal people who volunteer often help other Habitat affiliates during their season away from NH.
Who We Serve
We serve communities east of Lake Winnipesaukee, including the towns of Alton, Brookfield, Effingham, Freedom, Ossipee, Tuftonboro, Wakefield, and Wolfeboro.
Qualifying for a Home
The process for applying for a home takes some time. One must apply during an open application period, which is announced publicly via media outlets. Applicants are first screened for qualifying factors and then extensively interviewed by an impartial committee. See the “Apply for Home” tab to download the application for homeownership. Deadline for applications for our current build was May 6, 2022. We will update this page when we are taking new applications.
