Programs
Description
For 2015 we intend to complete construction on house 7 in May and begin house 8 in Samos. We are currently fundraising for house 8. Families selection is in progress for house 8. One of the potential families was identified earlier and has done 50 hours of sweat equity on house 7 to learn construction skills.
 
All partner families are required to complete financial management and home maintenance courses as well as complete 400 hours of sweat equity.
Population Served Families
Short Term Success children do better in school when they live in a stable home.
Long Term Success   Habitat families enjoy a stable home environment with a new home at a low cost with a zero interest 30year mortgage. Families and children do better in such and environment.
CEO/ED/Board Comments Our primary challenge is development of funding to meet the large demand for  decent housing in Middlesex.
