Where We Build
Families around the world partner with Habitat for Humanity to build safe and secure homes. Habitat currently works in more than 70 countries and has helped more than 39 million people with improved living conditions since 1976.
Habitat improves the housing conditions 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 affiliate's 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 planning to commence construction of a new single-family home on Hickory Street 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.
