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.

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!

Brush with Kindness

A Brush with Kindness is our lifeline to homeowners on fixed incomes who cannot afford routine maintenance that impact their activities of daily living.

While the scope of the light repairs varies, our goal is to enable senior homeowners and those disabled to remain in their homes. Volunteers donate expertise, and businesses donate materials in partnership with community senior and social services providers.


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.
