About Habitat for Humanity of ECT

Our Mission Statement:

Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut, in the spirit of sharing, creates decent and affordable homes in partnership with families in need. We do this through the dedicated efforts of community volunteers, financial sponsors and partner families who find rewarding experiences by sharing their time, talents and resources. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of others, fulfill the dream of home ownership and help eliminate sub-standard housing in Eastern Connecticut.

Our History:

Organized in 1987, Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut (HFHECT) has constructed or rehabilitated 68 homes in our area using volunteer labor and donated building material or material purchased with donated funds. The affiliate's financial backing comes from private citizens, foundations, corporations, and area churches. Future homeowners work side by side with volunteers from the community.

It’s quite special to be summoned to the Mayor’s office. The reason why is really awesome: to be presented with a check payable to Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut in the amount of $220,000.00. Why? Because Eversource Energy is keeping its promise and commitment to serve the communities it serves. Thank you Eversource.
