Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield & Middlesex County
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield & Middlesex County invites people from all faiths and walks of life to work together in partnership, building houses with families in need. Habitat of Plainfield/Middlesex, a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, is committed to improving the lives of low-income families in the Greater Plainfield area and Middlesex County by helping them build and buy their own simple, decent homes. Habitat offers families a hand up, not a hand out. Every partner family devotes at least 200 hours of sweat equity to help build their home or another home and secures a 0% mortgage provided by Habitat. Habitat supports partner families with training in budgeting, home and landscape maintenance, and how to be a good neighbor. 41 homes since 1989 have been built by HFH-GPMC, all built 100% by volunteers.
