Southeast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity groundbreaking on veteran’s home in Farmington
On Wednesday, August 24, Habitat and its newest partner family broke ground at 35 Richards Way in Farmington. This new build is the future home for Albert, an Army Vet, and his wife Melissa who is currently studying to be a nurse.
The San Miguel’s have three daughters and a young grandson. This deserving family helped build their home alongside the many volunteers and will pay a zero percent mortgage when the home is complete, a benefit offered to all Habitat homeowners here in New Hampshire.
Farmington officials were on hand, along with Habitat Board members, as they placed the first shovels in the ground at the site where the home will be built.
Marcie Bergan, Executive Director of SENH4H, said, “Working with the VA we have found the perfect fit for this next build. The community has already come together and there are several Veteran Build and corporate build days scheduled to help us raise the roof. We cannot do what we do without the support we receive from our volunteers, corporate team builds, donors and individuals who support our mission of affordable housing."
Veterans Build is Habitat for Humanity’s nationwide initiative to provide housing solutions and volunteer opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members and their families. The program focuses on building affordable housing, engaging military members through volunteer opportunities, home ownership opportunities and honoring our local veterans.
Southeast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity's mission is to eliminate poverty housing in Southeast New Hampshire. We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that works to strengthen families and communities through affordable homeownership opportunities. Southeast NH Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with corporations, like-minded community groups, faith-based organizations, universities and individual volunteers and donors to develop communities by building and renovating simple, decent, affordable homes with hard-working people who are in need. They partner with families whose income is above public housing guidelines and who are unable to qualify for conventional mortgages. They offer a hand up – not a hand out.
