Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Habitat’s primary program is partnering with economically disadvantaged families to build homes and provide the benefits of homeownership. Through the use of volunteer labor, we are able to build market-quality housing with the homeowner investing 200 hours of their own “sweat equity” in the project. We then sell the completed home at below market cost, financing the home for 25 years under a zero interest mortgage.
Our next project is officially underway in Sedgwick!!!
This week we have been fortunate to host the returning Bates College Builders who joined us over their Spring Break. (‘Thanks’ to Blue Hill Congregational Church who put them up for the week!) Here the students are pictured with the Combs family and are also shown taking a moment to pose while installing siding.
And here is last year’s group pictured on their 1/2 day off in Acadia:
