HABITAT for HUMANITY of NORTHWEST CONNECTICUT



Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut works with volunteers to promote home ownership by building houses in partnership with residents in need of adequate housing.

Our affiliate dedicated its eleventh home on November 7, 2015, the second to be located in North Canaan; construction on new home is underway in Sharon, and rehabilitation continues on two homes in Falls Village. 

We serve the six-town area of Canaan/Falls Village, Cornwall, Norfolk, North Canaan, Salisbury, and Sharon.

The Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut's website is made possible due to a donation from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
