Our mission is to build homes, community and hope. Our vision is a world where everyone has a place to live. We believe that every family needs a place to call home. Every child needs a place to dream. And every family needs a safe haven to secure the future for those they love. Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester builds homes for low-income families throughout 42 cities and towns in Massachusetts. We have an open-door policy, welcoming all volunteers and supporters, regardless of religious affiliation, race, nationality or other background. Under the motto of “a hand up, not a handout,” we build houses with families rather than for them. Partner families must contribute 400 to 500 hours of sweat equity building their homes and learning skills to become successful homeowners. The families will then buy the home at a 0% interest rate mortgage based on their income, which must fall between 30% – 60% of the area’s median income.
