HABITAT for HUMANITY of NORTHWEST CONNECTICUT

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.
