Habitat is seeking a new Partner Family for a home in Canaan / Falls Village!

Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut is pleased to announce that it will be accepting applications from eligible families eager to pursue their dream of home ownership in Falls Village from December 1, 2017 to January 15, 2018 (a six week window)!  Don’t wait as the time to start the application is now!

The opportunity to Partner with a new family came about due to changes in the circumstances of the previous family.  The home is now ready for a new Partner Family!  There will be a need to do cosmetic work (for the most part) such as painting and floor refinishing, and the new Partner Family will be required to invest 200 hours of ‘sweat equity’ to help bring the project to completion.

This is a 3 bedroom home, with a 3/4 bath on the upper level as well as one bedroom, and the kitchen, dining and living areas.  The lower level has 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a common room, a storage room and a mechanical room.  The rear of the home is shown in the photo.

Contact Bob Whelan at, or 860-435-4747 if you have any questions or would like to obtain an application package.
