Who We Are
Lamoille County Chapter of Habitat For Humanity is a local, non-profit organization pursuing the building of decent affordable homes for people who do not qualify for a standard loan. The family selected is screened to meet income and personal guidelines and must participate in the building of their and others' homes. Labor is provided by local volunteers so the home is built affordably.
The local Board currently coordinates and oversees fundraising, family selection and site selection for the first home to be built in Lamoille County. When adequate funds are accumulated to begin construction, the Board will coordinate and oversee construction and continue to work with the selected family to assure their success as homeowners.
The repayment of the loan and ongoing fundraising will provide funds to begin another home for another family. Habitat For Humanity International's thirty four years of building in this manner provides a successful map for this local to follow and realize its goals.
This local Habitat, begun 1n 2008, has been supported by volunteers, community churches and businesses in the form of labor and donations, to give this organization a good beginning. A first home is the immediate goal, with many more to be built in the future.
