No experience - no problem! Each and every volunteer brings new vitality and strength and becomes part of the Essex County Habitat family. We offer individual and group opportunities, including corporate groups, schools, and faith-based organizations a wonderful way to build homes and build camaraderie!

Our Andover project will be a total of 3 duplexes; We are partnering with Andover Community Trust on one and Habitat will build the other 2 duplexes. One family is headed by a veteran and another needs a handicap accessible home so we are making changes to the architectural plan.

For our construction build sites, we require a full day commitment.

A standard build work day is:

8:15am - 8:30am registration / orientation / photo op

8:30am work assignment

8:35pm - 12pm work

12pm - 1pm lunch (bring your own)

1pm - 3:30pm work

3:30-4pm tidy up and head home

About Essex County Habitat for Humanity

Location:

14 Park St, Danvers, MA 01923, US

Mission Statement

We believe that a stable community begins with home ownership. By giving this opportunity to economically disadvantaged people in our community, we are enabling them to take control of their lives. Habitat’s ultimate goal is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the world by providing homeownership opportunities to those in need. Essex County Habitat for Humanity is part of a global nonprofit housing ministry that works in partnership with people in need to build or renovate simple decent homes. Habitat for Humanity is founded on the conviction that everyone should have a safe and decent place to live. Our programs bring people together - both at the community level and in the broader society (government, civic organizations, the general public, etc.) to build homes to be owned by families in the communities we serve in Essex County.

Description

We form unique partnerships between volunteer builders, skilled craftsmen, individual donors, faith communities, businesses, and prospective homeowners. Each Habitat homeowner must complete 300 hours of "sweat"equity working vith volunteers to build their own home, homes for other famlies, while also completing a series of morgage and personal finance classes.
