A letter from Bob Whelan, Executive Director
Everyone needs a place to call home!
The vision of Habitat for Humanity is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. It doesn’t need to be fancy or elaborate – but safe and stable, a modest home where a family finds comfort and consistency. A suitable home where they can work locally, raise a family and become part of the community.
Habitat core themes emphasize strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter.
Strength – A Habitat home is a strong foundation for a family – an opportunity on which they can build a better life.
Stability – Strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities.
Self-reliance – Habitat homeowners receive financial education, help build and maintain their homes and pay an affordable mortgage. Habitat home owners are more able to help themselves.
Shelter – A Habitat home puts families on a new path – where stability and self-reliance are actually obtainable, not merely aspirational.
Your donations and volunteer assistance have helped Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. Here in the Northwest corner of CT we are still learning from the foundation of dedicated volunteers and supporters who have served us for the last 30 years. Perhaps you would like to join us as we start the next 30 years, building more affordable housing for a strong future. Consider becoming a Habitat volunteer.
Everyone, every donation, every helping hand, every day, every home.
Habitat for Humanity = Helping Families Here!
Bob Whelan, Executive Director
