Seeking to put God’s love into action, Hancock County Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Please Note: January-March our ReStore be closed on Wednesdays (to save on winter heating costs); open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during our normal hours of 9:30a.m. to 4p.m. We’ll resume our Wednesday-Saturday schedule come April.
Inclement Weather Policy: For the safety of our ReStore customers, staff and volunteers, the store will be closed or have a delayed opening based on what the local Ellsworth school system is doing. Check out http://bangordailynews.com/
An excerpt from our Annual Appeal: Of our ministry’s impact, one long-time homeowner said: “I am so proud of my home, and I am so proud of the people who helped my family build this home. I am humbled about everything that has happened for my family because of Habitat—most especially the opportunities my children have had and the life we’ve been able to make together in our home and on our land. I would not even be who I am and have the job that I have right now if it weren’t for Hancock County Habitat….”
Our current project in Sedgwick wrapped up just before Christmas!!! Visit Our Current Project page to learn more about this home for Missy Combs and her children or our Facebook site to see more images of the build progress from start to finish.
Here are some photos of recent site volunteers — individual volunteers, members of the Bucksport Garden Club, members of the UU Congregation in Castine, two Bates Aesop groups, Camp Walt Whitman’s CIT group, the Ellsworth Lioness Club and their daughters, a local Girl Scout troop from Castine, and Stan Leach, builder!
And, of course, we count our affiliate very lucky to have the on-going support and commitment of the below congregations on what we called the “Disciple Build”.
