Seacoast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity hosts Reception at the One Hundred Club

The One Hundred Club welcomed Seacoast New Hampshire Habitat Humanity for their ASK event on May 9th.  Approximately 50 people attended the fundraiser and were able to enjoy the beautiful view from the rooftop Terrace off the River Room at the Club.

The goal for this event was to raise $40,000 for specific project completions in the state of New Hampshire and $23,000 was raised!  The remaining funds are still needed to complete the Habitat house on Reservoir Road in Farmington, NH and to break ground on a 4th house on Berry Ct., also in Farmington, NH.

The mission of Southeast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing in Southeast New Hampshire.

They are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that works to strengthen families and communities through affordable homeownership opportunities.  Southeast NH Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with corporations, like-minded community groups, faith-based organizations, and individual volunteers to develop communities by building and renovating simple, decent, affordable homes with hard-working people who are in need.

They partner with families whose income is above public housing guidelines and who are unable to qualify for conventional mortgages. Qualified families are given a hand up (not a hand out), and they pay a monthly no-interest mortgage to Habitat.  These monies, in turn, go back into building more, simple, decent, affordable homes.  Habitat is committed to developing and uplifting families and communities in addition to constructing houses.

Since their founding in 1990, they have built or rehabilitated 15 homes in Dover, Gonic, Northwood, Rochester, Somersworth and Farmington.  To date, Southeast NH Habitat for Humanity’s largest completed project was a three-home community in Farmington called Joseph Halley Way.  Their projects have placed more than 50 people in quality housing.  In addition, they are now helping to fund the construction of their first home in Costa Rica through their sister affiliate.

Executive Director, Marci Bergan and Board Member, Cindy Ward wrapped up the evening by sharing success stories of local families who benefited from the organization and thanked their guests for their donations for a worthy cause.

The One Hundred Club applauds Seacoast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity and wishes them great success in their efforts to eliminate poverty housing in the New Hampshire area.

Building Houses, Building Hope.
