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 and recreation in a community.
