Organization Description

Mission: Our goal is to make homeownership possible for low-income families in our region. Through the donation of money, land, expertise, and labor we commit ourselves to construct affordable, sturdy houses. We are committed to providing our families with the supportive services necessary to become successful and responsible homeowners. We challenge our community to share from its abundant resources, labor, and capital, with those in need. We pledge ourselves to the building of genuine community through the shared labor of constructing decent, affordable homes for those less fortunate than ourselves.

Goals: Our goal is to identify and achieve specific organizational tasks that serve the needs of volunteers and low-income families in the Pioneer Valley region.
