Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity / 7 Rivers Maine creates successful homeownership opportunities for families with limited incomes by building sustainable housing and repairing and weatherizing existing homes.

Description

Habitat for Humanity/7 Rivers Maine believes that everyone deserves a decent and healthy place in which to live, learn, and grow. We are a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat coordinates the labor of volunteers with contributions of money and materials to build modest, affordable housing and renovate family-owned homes in partnership with people in need. Houses are then sold to our partner families at no profit and very low interest - "Not a hand-out but a hand-up".

Habitat for Humanity / 7 Rivers Maine also operates a ReStore in Topsham. This retail outlet accepts donations of building supplies, furniture, appliances, and fixtures and then sells these items back to the public at 25-40% off retail price. Monies generated by the ReStore are used for administrative costs and building projects.
