We broke ground at 95 Friendship St, Billerica
The Santiago Family put shovels to dirt and kicked off the start of the Friendship St Billerica home build. Building will soon be underway and volunteers will be swinging hammers alongside the family. After the celebration the family now knows this is real, construction will soon being and this home offers them a new beginning. It takes many hands to help build a home. Thank you to all our sponsors (Lions Club, Epsilon, Millipore, Progress Software, Northern Bank and Stoneham Bank, Habitat ReStore) and to Shawsheen Tech (whose students will help build this home) Hanscom AFB, and all our volunteers who will be part of this build.

After several weeks of dealing with a tremendous amount of ledge the cement trucks arrived early on Monday May 12 and began pouring the concrete for the foundation. Then on May 29th the first wall was raised by women from Lowell General Hospital. It is official, Willie St build is underway.
Over the past 7 months, volunteers and the Partner Families have been working very hard to complete these two homes. The process is almost complete. With just weeks away from completion – the Bullard and the Bamunoba Family will have a safe, decent, affordable home this holiday season. A home to begin a new chapter in their lives and a new home to create new memories and traditions. Thank you to all who have been a part of this project.
It took many hands to build these homes. 1000′s of volunteers turned this once vacant lot into two safe, decent, energy efficient, affordable homes. All this could not have happen without the dedication and support of the community.
Additional volunteers needed for the ReStore and for Critical Home Repair projects.

“Being a homeowner to me and my family means a lot. First , it is peace of mind, and no more moving from apartment to apartment. The children think having more space, a room to relax in, and a backyard will give them the chance to walk and play outdoors and do better in school as well.
We are ready to work with you.” Kabagambe
