This summer, July 9-16th (7 nights, 8 days), Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut will be hosting a week of volunteering, building homes for deserving families. The need for affordable housing in Connecticut is significant. Hard working, low-income families rarely earn enough to own their own home in CT where housing costs are some of the highest in the country. Your help will go far towards making this dream possible. Volunteers will converge in Eastern Connecticut from all across the country and enjoy the scenic beauty of the New England shoreline.

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.
