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 ninth and tenth home located in North Canaan and Norfolk respectively; rehabilitation of a home located in North Canaan has begun. 
We serve the six-town area of Canaan, Cornwall, Falls Village, Norfolk, 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.
