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.

Building a Better Future Together

"Being chosen to buy our home from Housatonic Habitat was the best thing that ever happened to our family. We love our beautiful home, and are so incredibly happy in our new neighborhood." says Housatoninc Habitat homeowner Keri. We are building stronger communities one home, one family at a time.

Thank you!

We celebrated 30 years of building homes, community and hope at our 1st Annual Blueprints & Blue Jeans fundraising event on September 22 at Lounsbury House in Ridgefield. The event featured an inspiring program honoring John Patrick, co-founder and supporter of Housatonic Habitat, a live auction, music by Jim Endee, a wine pull and delicious food & drinks. We are so thankful for the donations from the many local businesses that made the evening so special, especially M&T Bank our underwriting sponsor.

The Gift of 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!
