Home building has started!

Construction is underway with a home in Williamstown.

The Habitat Home on Cole Avenue and Maple Street in Williamstown has three bedrooms and twelve hundred square feet of living area. Once completed, we will build a second home on the same lot. At a later date, we will start two more on Summer Street in Williamstown.

Northern Berkshire Habitat for Humanity builds homes in partnership with individuals and families in need of a decent and affordable place to live. Families are selected based on their need for housing, ability to repay a no-profit mortgage, and willingness to partner with us. The family must provide a minimum of 250 hours of sweat equity in the construction of their home or another community service. The family will then pay a low-interest mortgage. 

The home site pictured in the photo is in the foundation stage of the project. During the Labor Day weekend, the walls will be added.  Volunteers are in high demand! See below for registration instructions.
