Strong and stable homes help build strong and stable communities!
Houses built from scratch on an empty lot. In partnership with a qualifying family, we build a new, affordable home. Qualifying families are required to invest sweat equity and pay for the cost of materials and land. Since being founded, MAHFH has built 17 homes and has celebrated the dream of home ownership with 20 families. New Builds are started on an as needed basis as families qualify. Calendars with specific information on how and when the build is progressing are added as available.
Homes purchased by Marshfield Habitat for Humanity and completely remodeled from stem to stern. Typically this would include major renovations including removing old wall coverings, re-insulating, re-wiring, and re-plumbing to bring everything up to local code requirements.
