Greater Nashua Habitat for Humanity
Housing AssistanceNon-Profit Organization
In 1994, a small group of dedicated volunteers decided the Greater Nashua area needed Habitat for Humanity. Officially established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on November 9, 1994, these dedicated volunteers looked around and saw that many families were struggling to find affordable housing. Determined to help meet the need, these committed volunteers knew that the services of Habitat for Humanity would benefit local families by building safe, decent, affordable housing to help break the cycle of poverty and provide a stable home for years to come. In the very beginning, the affiliate was able to provide a small number of critical home repairs and community improvement projects with limited funding and a modest group of volunteers.
The first Habitat for Humanity home was built 27 years ago in 1994, by partnering with Monadnock Habitat For Humanity to complete a home in Amherst, NH. In 1997, GNHFH became owners of their first property, a duplex in the French Hill Neighborhood, providing housing for two deserving families. This project, along with ongoing critical home repairs, started the momentum that has made GNHFH an integral part of the Greater Nashua Area.
