Before we moved into our new [Habitat] home, our family was always under extreme stress. The cost of renting on the South Shore is extreme to say the least. Add to that the shortage of housing. We have moved five times in five years. Our children have had to change schools several times. Our rent was always so high; we always had trouble making ends meet. The basic need of housing was our biggest burden, and the weight of this stress was taking its toll on the our whole family.

Habitat for Humanity


South Shore Habitat for Humanity is a faith-based, nonprofit organization dedicated to delivering simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with families in need.

NFPA collaborated with the Massachusetts Fire Sprinkler Coalition, the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA), and the South Shore Habitat for Humanity to sprinkler the three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath homes. NFPA President Jim Pauley took part in assisting professionals with the installation, which will take no more than a couple days to complete. Also in attendance was coalition chair Mary Regan, chief of the Westfield Fire Department, and David LaFond with NFSA, which assisted in obtaining the materials and labor for the installation.  

"This type of partnership is essential to the success of our homebuilding efforts," says Martine Taylor, South Shore Habitat's executive director. "These contributions enable us to help families move out of unsafe and substandard housing and into decent, affordable homes of their own."

World Habitat Day logoCelebrating World Habitat Day, October 6, 2014

On World Habitat Day, the first Monday in October, Habitat for Humanity joined the United Nations and organizations around the world in raising awareness, educating and mobilizing individuals and communities to take action on the current global housing crisis. Housing is central to ending the cycle of poverty. We want to see a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and so, on World Habitat Day, we call for programs, policies and systems that would make that world possible. Sign the petition to add your voice in support of the common vision of ending poverty housing across the globe.

Building Fire Safe Homes in Hanover

South Shore Habitat was pleased to host supporters of home fire sprinklers at the Center Street, Hanover build site on September 25 as sprinkler installation on the two new homes began.
