We were made aware of the recent house fire involving our homeowner and her family. We are incredibly saddened to hear about the family’s loss and are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We are coordinating information with local officials as they go through their investigation. We do not have additional information to share at this time. We ask for the greater community to pray for the family.

One of our greatest challenges is finding homes to rehab or property to build a home for the many eligible families that apply to become homeowners. Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT’s goal of eliminating substandard housing works hand-in-hand with the ordinances of local municipalities. We impact the community where we build or rehab by turning a vacant, blighted property into additional tax dollars for the municipality as well as increase the local property values. The additional income can be used to improve education infrastructure and recreation in a community.
