Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut

Our featured non-profit organization for the month of October is Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut. Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut (HFHECT) was founded in 1987. Habitat homeowners are low-income heads of household who invest 350 hours of sweat equity to help build their homes, and buy their homes with a no-profit, affordable mortgage financed by the organization. Mortgage payments are re-invested to build more homes, and property taxes paid by homeowners help fund local municipal services. HFHECT has housed 98 families across Eastern Connecticut since its founding, and aims to house five families each year. To learn more about our work, donate, or volunteer, visit www.habitatect.org, call (860) 442-7890 and read our Fall 2021 newsletter Fall 2021 Toolbox - The Newsletter by Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut.

Donation Information:
Please consider making a one time or a recurring monthly donation to Habitat either online or in person at the Expo (cash only at the Expo). Donate at the Expo and earn an extra ticket for Door Prizes!

Monthly donors make small, automatic donations every month, which makes it easier for Habitat to plan long-term, budget more efficiently and create more life-changing outcomes. You choose how much to give and for how long, and you can change your amount or cancel at any time. Donate monthly to help make this a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to live.
