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.

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!
