Current Build: Wakefield NH
Building New Homes with Partner Families.
We are very excited to be partnering with the Nason family. Construction started in 2019. This is our 13th home that our affiliate has built.
What does it take?
We are estimating the home will cost $197,000 to build. We have some material donations and volunteer help, but need about $85,000 in cash donations to keep everything flowing through the build and to prepare for the next build. We are starting a new club. Club85 members donate $85 at the end of each build. If 1,000 members donated $85, we would have enough funds to start our next build. Look for our Club85 flyer on Facebook.

Habitat gives us an opportunity which is very difficult to find: to reach out and work side by side with those who never have had a decent home, but work with them on a completely equal basis. It’s not a big shot, little shot relationship. It’s a sense of equality.
