EASTON, Mass. - Feb. 14, 2019 - PRLog -- South Shore Habitat for Humanity (http://sshabitat.org), which has delivered quality housing in partnership with families in need for the past 32 years, will begin construction of a single family home on Electric Avenue in Easton and invites the community to learn about how it partners with the local community.

The Easton community meeting will be held on Monday, March 11, 2019 at the Council on Aging, Frothingham Hall at 15 Barrows Street from 6:30–7:30 p.m. Representatives from Habitat will share their build plans and outline the ways the community can get involved. Individuals, organizations, businesses and faith groups are encouraged to attend.

Since 1986 South Shore Habitat for Humanity has built 58 homes. With help from its donors and volunteers the organization is on target to complete 12 homes by 2020. This home will be the fourth Habitat home in Easton.

"The need for affordable housing is critical. Together with municipalities and volunteers, we can be a solution to the affordable housing crisis here in Massachusetts," said South Shore Habitat Executive Director Martine Taylor.

Habitat Family Partners are selected through an application process based on a number of factors including their ability to pay, willingness to partner, and their need for adequate housing. The program also requires that Family Partners put in "sweat equity hours" alongside local volunteers on the building of their home.

South Shore Habitat for Humanity offers a "hand-up, not a hand-out," said Taylor. "Homes are purchased through an affordable mortgage program. Habitat does not build these homes; the local communities do. We are so very grateful to all of our donors and volunteers for their contributions and for making homeownership a reality for these families."
