The Nantucket chapter of Habitat for Humanity is currently building three new homes in the Miacomet area of the island. The Habitat mission is: We build hope for families, our community, and future generations. In creative partnership with people in need and the Nantucket community, we build and renovate homes for ownership. We make a positive difference in our world by creating opportunities for volunteers and family members to work together to secure our shared future. Applications are now available on-line.
From Habitat: “Habitat for Humanity Nantucket seeks to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action for all people, and work to provide the opportunity of affordable homeownership to families living in situations of critical housing need, both locally and worldwide, through construction, advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
Partnership is key to our work. Each home is built by community volunteers and the sweat equity of the future owner. We rely on our community for donations of cash, land, materials and professional services.
Founded in 2001 as a recognized affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International by concerned members of the Congregational Church on Nantucket as a recognized affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we have built 11 homes for Nantucket working families to date. Every new home is deed restricted to be affordable, upon any future resale, in perpetuity.
Habitat for Humanity of Nantucket is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization.”
