For 28 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.

Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut regretfully passes on sad news to our community.

Judith Becker, our long time Board member and Secretary has succumbed to her battle with cancer.

In memory of our friend and colleague, Habitat will establish the Judith Becker Habitat Landscape Fund.  Its purpose will be to insure that Judith’s vision of verdant landscapes will be an element of all Habitat homes.  More information will follow shortly.

Thanks to all the volunteers and supporters who helped to make the 28th Annual Giant Tag Sale a success!  This is how we build homes and community!
