The Hills Church works with the Merrimack Valley chapter of Habitat for Humanity, donating both volunteer hours and financial assistance to this worthy organization. Habitat for Humanity gives low income families a chance at home ownership, providing them “a hand up, not a hand out.”
Selected families are required to volunteer a minimum of 250 hours to build their own home. They also help with the construction of other homes. The families then buy their homes at no profit and with the benefit of a 0% interest mortgage. New home owners are also given home ownership classes and a mentor to work with them throughout the process.
