For 26 years, Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut has participated in working to build stronger communities. We treasure our volunteers, donors from the past and present, and those who work with us to create lasting impacts for hard-working local families. Without our wonderful community, we could not provide the opportunity of affordable home ownership and help families to achieve their dreams of a brighter future.
Since 1991, helping families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter in Canaan/Falls Village, Cornwall, Norfolk, North Canaan, Salisbury and Sharon.
This ‘n’ That from Habitat is now on Summer Hours!
The store is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm 7 days a week!
Habitat’s newest Partner Family is Announced!
Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut is pleased to announce that it has selected the family of Harriet Nirschel, currently residing in Falls Village / Canaan as the next Partner Family.
From a pool of very qualified and deserving applicants, a choice had to be made. While it’s never an easy task, our Family Selection Committee reviewed the applications and conducted interviews with everyone who had submitted an application, and one family was selected!
Harriet and her family currently reside in Falls Village / Canaan, and she is well known to members of that small community. Many community members have already volunteered to help Harriet and her family move into the home on River Road, and it’s just that spirit of extending a hand to help prepare their home that makes the Habitat mission so fulfilling.
It would be a wonderful world if all the families that applied to Partner with Habitat could be accommodated, and we constantly strive to serve more and more worthy applicants with a need for decent, affordable housing. Habitat can only do this with support from our wonderful community, and we always seek volunteers to respond to our outreach by email for help! Our ‘Volunteer’ page gives you more information, as well as a volunteer sign-up form. Let us know you can help, and we’ll make sure you get the word when help is needed!
WE ARE NOW IN THE FINAL STAGES OF WORK AT 273 LOW ROAD, AND WILL SOON BE ASKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO WORK WITH OUR NEWEST PARTNER FAMILY AT 20 RIVER ROAD!
The home at 273 Low Road in Sharon is almost complete! The interior only needs to have the finished flooring in place and the counters installed. Although there are ongoing water issues (given the location of the home and all the nasty weather), we’re moving ahead as quickly as possible to have Heather and Nate and their 5 children into their home to enjoy spring there!
At 20 River Road, we need to finish up some drywall work, and we’ll then be working to have the next Partner, Harriet Nirschel and her family into their home, hopefully by June 30th, 2018. Fingers crossed!
Stay tuned or watch your email inbox for our volunteer shout-outs to help us fulfill another families dream of a home to call their own.
