On Tuesday November 12th, Women’s Fellowship and the Missions committee held a meeting featuring a presentation on Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut (HFHECT). Stacy Goforth, a volunteer with Habitat, came and shared information about the organization along with ongoing work projects and volunteer opportunities. Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat works toward that vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. In the spirit of sharing, HFHECT creates decent and affordable homes in partnership with families in need. Since Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut was organized in 1987, it has constructed or rehabilitated 92 homes in our area using volunteer labor and donated building material or material purchased with donated funds. Although we had a smaller group than expected (it was a cold and rainy night), a lot of enthusiasm was generated for the program by all present. Watch for more news in the coming months about how you can become involved!
