Home Building

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell (EIN: 04-3123186) services 15 towns in the Greater Lowell/Middlesex County region. Working with the local community, local companies, interfaith community and individual volunteers, Habitat will build affordable simple, decent, energy efficient homes. Partner families earning between 25-60% of the area medium income will provide up to 450 hours of sweat equity to build their home as well as participate in financial classes.

Population(s) Served
Families
Seniors

In an attempt to impact more families, we have launched a program called veteran critical repairs. The program is designed to help veterans stay in their homes and for us to provide assistance in repairs and renovations that will make the home safe, accessible and cost effective. The program is like other Habitat programs and the family is asked to participate in the program so that it is also a hand up , not a hand out.
