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.

Braintree Area Community Meetings/Minutes

There is no meeting currently scheduled.

Please check with us again for information on future meetings.

We have built four Habitat homes in Braintree. The Braintree Area Local Partnership Committee (LPC) continues to meet in anticipation of another Braintree area build. Volunteers are welcome.

This is a great way to utilize your skills, meet neighbors, help spread the word about Habitat for Humanity and spend time helping others.
