Correspondence From Leader of a Build Day Crew
Good afternoon Dino and the rest of the Habitat crew
I just wanted to take a moment to actually thank YOU and Habitat for what you have done for us and the hotel staff. We originally reached out to Habitat as part of our Courtyard Cares initiative to help and give back to the community. It was an awesome experience as we expected it to be….but that’s not why I am sending you all this email.
Home Dedication The Lawyea Family More Presence in Plainfield
On Saturday morning, June 18 the sun was brilliant. The color of the sky was striking clear blue with hints of cotton white clouds. The air was crisp. The construction crew was busy with last minute touches. Event staff were setting up refreshments and readying the home for tours. Just before 10 AM, the guests arrived at 10 Winsor Avenue. It was a perfect morning to dedicate our first home in Plainfield and celebrate the achievements of the future homeowner, Jeannette Lawyea and her family.

One of our greatest challenges is finding homes to rehab or property to build a home for the many eligible families that apply to become homeowners. Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT’s goal of eliminating substandard housing works hand-in-hand with the ordinances of local municipalities. We impact the community where we build or rehab by turning a vacant, blighted property into additional tax dollars for the municipality as well as increase the local property values. The additional income can be used to improve education infrastructure and recreation in a community.
