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.
Once again, a dedicated group of folks from the Habitat International program known as the RV Care-A-Vanners came together from all over the country and descended on Lone Oak Campsites courtesy of Jacolyn, Barry and Peter Brown of Lone Oak Campsites! The Brown family has been extremely supportive of the mission of Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut, and the Board of Directors of Habitat can’t thank the Brown’s enough, as well as the Care-A-Vanners! The RV Care-A-Vanners included:
- Ty and Larry Jones from Illinois
- Barbara and Phil Schuler from South Dakota
- Carolyn and Dan Banks from New Mexico
- Marguerite and Roger Schelling from New Hampshire

WE WILL SOON BE DOING MORE SHOUT-OUTS FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP US GET OUR 3RD FAMILY OF 2017 INTO THEIR HOME!
Now that we’ve gotten “2 Families in Two Weekends” complete, we’ve turned our attention to our project at 273 Low Road! Heather and Nate Ciccotelli and their 5 children are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to move into their new home, so the help of any and all will be MUCH APPRECIATED!
Many thanks as well to the Sharon Housing Trust for working with Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut to provide another affordable home to our community! It takes all of us working together to make change in small doses…
