Habitat For Humanity

The Hills Church works with the Merrimack Valley chapter of Habitat for Humanity (MVHH) – 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.” Families are selected by MVHH. They are required to volunteer a minimum of 250 hours to build their own home – as well as to help with the construction of other MVHH homes. The families then buy their homes at no profit and with the benefit of a 0% interest mortgage held by MVHH.  New home owners are also given home ownership classes and a mentor to work with them throughout the process.

During the fall of 2013, members of our congregation began working on the Parker Street project in Lawrence, Massachusetts – building and insulating walls, clearing debris, cleaning bricks and painting. When it is complete, there will be ten homes in this project – and at least two families have already been selected for ownership.
