Housatonic Habitat for Humanity participates in WCSU Community Service Fair
Housatonic Habitat for Humanity participated in Western Connecticut State University (WCSU)’s Community Service Fair. The Community Service Fair was hosted by the Office of Student Affairs to make WCSU students aware of the many different non-profits in the Greater Danbury area. Over 15 organizations participated in the event at WCSU Midtown including Housatonic Habitat for Humanity. Students were able to hear first-hand about the many programs underway and the volunteer opportunities available within our local community.
Housatonic Habitat for Humanity focuses on making a meaningful difference in the lives of qualified working families by promoting financial stability and self-sufficiency through ownership of affordable homes. Households often consist of those who have limited assets and who have jobs that also have income caps.
By providing decent, affordable, safe housing to qualified regional families, Housatonic Habitat contributes to community revitalization in the greater Danbury region by creating homes that can transform a street and neighborhood and add value to the community. This process transitions families from renters to homeowners who pay taxes; it helps stabilize families; and enables households to build equity for their future.
