SENH Habitat for Humanity presents Veteran Family with keys to new space
On Saturday, March 7th at 10:00 AM, Southeast New Hampshire (SENH) Habitat for Humanity will officially hand another Veteran family the keys to their newly renovated, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complaint space on Powers Street.
SENH Habitat is excited to have partnered with the Veterans Affairs (VA) for this construction project and is looking forward to presenting Michael “Mike” Beauregard, a Veteran of the United States (US) Army, with the keys to his family’s newly improved home. The Beauregard’s will be handed their new keys while surrounded by Habitat’s Board of Directors, Staff, and many of the volunteers and local businesses who helped build the house.
SENH Habitat has been focused on “Veteran Build” projects in Strafford and Rockingham Counties and continue to provide families with affordable homeownership opportunities. Last year, the organization was blessed to have had more than 1,500 local volunteers roll up their sleeves and participate in the building of two houses for SENH Habitat’s newest “Veteran Partner Families” in both Dover and Raymond.
“We are so grateful for the opportunity work alongside the VA and to make a difference in the lives of those who served our country,” shared SENH Habitat’s Executive Director, Marcie Bergan. “It’s been amazing to witness the generosity and support shown by the local Veteran population, businesses and all who came out to help build the Beauregard’s new space.”
SENH Habitat broke ground on the “Beauregard Project” in August of 2019. The organization was blessed with help from a village of volunteers, community members and local businesses who generously donated their time, in-kind services and construction materials to complete the 725 square foot addition in Raymond.
“Being able to live on one level of my home will truly be life changing for me as I have ongoing mobility issues,” shared Mike Beauregard. “I am grateful to have other Veterans willing to help me and I’m so thankful to SENH Habitat and to all of the volunteers who have helped change my life forever.”
The mission of SENH Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing in Southeast NH. To volunteer, donate or learn more about SENH Habitat for Humanity, please visit www.senhhabitat.org or call (603) 433-9555.
