Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell (HFHGL), is a non-profit 501(c)3 whose mission is to provide decent affordable housing to families who would otherwise be forced by circumstances to live in substandard housing. HFHGL works in partnership with corporations, individual volunteers, local community groups and faith based organizations to develop communities for people in need by building and renovating simple, energy efficient affordable homes. HFHGL has been servicing 16 communities in the Greater Lowell area since 1991. HFHGL has built/rehabilitated 49 homes for families in our local community, 75 homes globally and completed 69 Critical Repair for a local veterans and seniors. Habitat believes in providing a hand up not a hand out to end the cycle of poverty housing. Towns supported by HFHGL are Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Concord, Dracut, Dunstable, Lowell, No Reading, Reading, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, Wakefield, Westford, and Wilmington.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, HFHGL builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest mortgage. Partner families are also required to help build their home. They must commit to building up to 450 hours. The homeowners' monthly mortgage payments are used to build more houses.
