how to help
Habitat helps families
acquire a forever home.
We build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry. We seek to eliminate poverty housing, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
We are the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, addressing the needs of people living in the Greater Bangor area.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor has worked in partnership with volunteers and low-income families since 1989 to build 21 simple, decent houses in the local community. Habitat's affordable house payments free up money for food, child care, medicine, and other necessities. Research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children's educational achievement, and strengthens community ties.
Habitat for Humanity partners with people to help them build a place they can call home. To us and millions of people around the world, there is no better expression of love than to help our neighbors purchase their own home.
Every day in the Greater Bangor area, families dream of having a healthy, affordable home of their own. Having a stable home in which to live means that children often do better in school, families and communities are healthier, and parents often get better jobs and improve the family's financial situation.
A family’s partnership with Habitat means they have a stable place to live and to spend time together. An affordable mortgage means they have a chance to create savings and invest in their education. A decent roof over their heads establishes home as a place that protects — instead of endangering — their health.
