Where We Build
Since 1976, Habitat has helped more than 9.8 million people meet their affordable housing needs. In fiscal year 2016, Habitat improved the housing conditions of 3 million people through new home construction, rehabilitation, incremental improvements, repairs or increased access to improved shelter through partnerships with the private sector. In addition, nearly 2.1 million people now have the potential to improve their housing conditions as a result of Habitat’s advocacy efforts, which changed policies and systems to allow more access to shelter solutions, and because of our provision of information and training in construction, financial management and other housing-related topics..
Rutland County is our service area. We completed our first project in the fall of 2016 in Fair Haven. It was a whole house renovation. Resources permitting, we are currently building a new single-family home on Cleveland Avenue in Rutland City. Our success depends completely upon the extent to which area residents help through volunteering and contributing materials, services, and money in support of our mission.
