About the Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity:
Pioneer Valley Habitat (PVH) has provided permanent housing for 33 families. Building homes, hope, and community in Franklin and Hampshire Counties. PVH is a housing ministry dedicated to strengthening communities by empowering low-income families to change their lives and the lives of future generations through home ownership opportunities. This is accomplished by working in partnership with diverse people, from all walks of life, to build simple, decent, affordable housing.
Habitat’s mission to provide home ownership opportunities to low-income families is unique as it requires partner families to work alongside the community that is reaching out to help them. Each Habitat partner family provides at least 200 hours of “sweat equity,” or physical labor, toward the construction of their own home, other Habitat family homes, and special projects.
