Wayland – Stonebridge Road
Imagine – In 3 years, 4 families will be living on this property, starting a new neighborhood in Wayland….please consider helping Habitat for Humanity – MetroWest/Greater Worcester transform this land into affordable homes for deserving families!
HFH-MWGW was designated by Wayland to build 4 affordable homes on donated land at 91-93 and 95-97 Stonebridge Road as a friendly Chapter 40 B project. Homes will be sold to pre-qualified homeowners who demonstrate a need for housing, ability to partner with Habitat and ability to pay a mortgage. Families earn 25-60% of the area median income, attend homeownership and budgeting classes and contribute 400-500 hours of sweat equity. Habitat provides a 0 %-interest mortgage. To insure homeowner success prospective homeowners must attend training and work with a Habitat Family Partner who serves as a mentor.
A cluster of 4 units in two structures will maximize open space, designs will be energy efficient and compatible with residential surroundings.
Local leadership, a combination of public and private resources and hands-on participation by 1000 or more MetroWest volunteers will combine to ensure the success of this grass-roots effort to raise awareness and funds for affordable housing.
