April 20, 2019

Groundbreaking – New Affordable Home Build 172 Concord Street, Holliston, MA Monday, April 29th at 1:00 PM
 
Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester (HFH MW/GW) will break ground on a single-family home located at 172 Concord Street in Holliston on Monday, April 29th at 1:00 PM.  The 3-bedroom, 1 ½-bath home is located on a .5 acre parcel of land.  The home has been abandoned for several years and needs extensive rehabbing so that a local family be able to live in a decent and affordable home. 

The 110-year old home was donated to Habitat by the Holliston Housing Trust.  The home is scheduled to be dedicated to a local family in early summer of 2020.
 
Among those scheduled to speak will be Debbie Maruca Hoak, Executive Director, Bryan Clancy, Holliston Housing Trust, and State Rep. Carolyn Dykema.
 
Parking Information:  Please park on one side of Jarr Brook Road, a residential neighborhood. It is a very short walk to the build site at 172 Concord Avenue:  https://www.google.com/maps/place/172+Concord+St,+Holliston,+MA+01746/@42.2172053,71.4286695,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89e47703a9275a35:0x4deaa5f9449e6d2f!8m2!3d42.2172053!4d-71.4264808
 
Our mission is to build homes, community and hope for local low-income families and veterans in the Greater Worcester and MetroWest areas of Massachusetts. We serve 42 cities and towns in the region. Under the motto of “a hand up, not a handout,” we build houses with families rather than for them. Partner families must contribute 400 to 500 hours of sweat equity building their homes and learning skills to become successful homeowners.  They also pay back an affordable mortgage, based on their income.  
 
For more information, contact Deborah Huegel, Vice President of Philanthropy, at 508-799-9259, Ext. 118 or Deborah.Huegel@habitatmwgw.org.  Or visit our website at www.habitatmwgw.org.   For specific information and photos of the home, please visit https://www.habitatmwgw.org/current-andprevious-builds/.
