Veterans Build Initiatives

HOMEOWNERSHIP

Our mission is to build homes, community, and hope. Our program serves families and Veterans by providing home ownership opportunities in 42 cities and towns throughout the MetroWest and Greater Worcester regions of Massachusetts.

OPERATION PLAYHOUSE

We are looking to identify Veterans or current military members living in New England with young children (ages 2-12) who would like to receive a playhouse as a thank you for your service. The playhouses provide a special place for family members to bond, play, dream, and think.

HOME REPAIR

Our Home Repair program is an outreach initiative that seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for low income homeowners who are Veterans, elderly or disabled and are struggling to maintain their homes due to age, disability, or family circumstances.

Homeownership

Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester is an equal opportunity home builder and seller. Our mission is to build homes, communities, and hope. Our program serves families and Veterans by providing home ownership opportunities in 42 cities and towns throughout the MetroWest and Greater Worcester regions of MassachusettsIf you are looking for affordable housing opportunities in another part of the state, or country, please click here. Our selection, building, and selling process takes approximately 12 -24 months.

Habitat for Humanity believes in a hand up, instead of a hand out. Habitat homes are built with generous donations from our partners and thousands of volunteers. Families must be in the 30-60% range of the area's median income, give back 400 - 500 "sweat equity" hours on the project, attend financial education classes provided by Habitat, and pay back a 0% interest rate mortgage.

Operation Playhouse

Are you a Veteran or military family living in New England with children or grandchildren ages 2 – 12 years old? If so, please let us know if your child would like to receive a playhouse through our Operation Playhouse program.

Habitat for Humanity - MetroWest/Greater Worcester is the only Habitat affiliate on the East Coast, and one of a few nationwide, that offers Operation Playhouse. We build playhouses primarily in the MetroWest and Greater Worcester areas of Massachusetts with teams of 8 – 12 participants. Each playhouse is sponsored by a company or other group as a way to give back to Veterans and military families. Exact locations vary as to the company or partner that may be sponsoring the playhouse.

home repair

Our Home Repair program is an outreach initiative that seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for low income homeowners who are veterans, elderly or disabled and are struggling to maintain their homes due to age, disability, or family circumstances. For our elderly partners, this service provides aging in place.

This program allows us to partner with families to help them reclaim their homes with pride and dignity, focusing on exterior home repairs to address health, life and safety/code issues. The program allows families to stay in the home where they live without being disrupted by the uncertainty, trauma, and expense of moving.

Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester complies with the U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
