This is what your support goes toward - the building of decent, safe and affordable housing!
YouthBuild partners with Habitat
YouthBuild North Shore, a community workforce development program, has partnered with us to rehab a duplex in Peabody. When Nancy, a Habitat homeowner since 2014, was ready to move to a smaller home, we purchased her home back from her. Now, we’re updating the home so that a new family in need of an affordable home can move in.
Through YouthBuild's program, young people work towards their High School Equivalency Diploma, learn job skills, become certified pre-apprentice level construction workers where they serve their communities by building affordable housing.
They have been very instrumental in getting the work done at the Peabody site and they have learned so many skills along the way. Its a win-win for both of us!
