We build, renovate, and repair houses that provide affordable homes for under-served working families in the greater Danbury region.

One house, one family at a time.

Save the Date

Save the date! Join us in celebrating 30 years of building homes, community and hope. Please consider sponsoring or attending our upcoming 1st Annual Blueprints & Blue Jeans fundraising event on September 22. Housatonic Habitat was founded 30 years ago by several Ridgefield residents and has since grown to cover 16 towns in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties. This event will feature an inspiring program honoring John & Joanne Patrick, co-founders and supporters of Housatonic Habitat, a live auction, music, and food and drink for an evening that you will never forget. We are using the GiveSmart platform for this event. You will need to create or log into an account. If have questions regarding sponsorship please email Jen Russey at jen@housatonichabitat.org

Home Ownership

An affordable home with an affordable mortgage builds strong and stable families. Children remain in school. Strong and stable families build strong and stable communities that impacts us all.

Our homeowners now live in homes they own where the ratio of what they spend on housing is less than the regional rental model. They spend less … have a fixed monthly payment … are building equity … and a pride of ownership! The model is simple … yet successful!


Volunteers are the heart and soul of Housatonic Habitat for Humanity. Join the hundreds volunteers who contribute their time, talents and treasures to support us each year. Whether you’re an individual, corporate team, community group, a small group of friends, with skilled experience or not, there are many different ways for you to volunteer. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are the lifeblood of our organization. Whether you are interested in swinging a hammer, organizing a fundraiser, or serving on a committee, we welcome your participation.


Our 10,000 square-foot home improvement and resale warehouse turns donated materials into Habitat homes. Donations from individuals, big box stores, and local businesses are sold to the public at discounted prices. Unique stock changes daily making this a treasure hunt for the hundreds who shop for a cause.
