NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Two families will soon have a new home thanks to a Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity project.
Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity teamed up with Yankee Home Improvement to help get this home built. Yankee Home Improvement donated tens of thousands of dollars for materials. They also sent out a whole team of workers, to install the roofing, doors, windows, and siding.
The Habitat for Humanity Hawthorne Farm project is located on East Pleasant St. in Amherst. Yankee Home improvement is building much of the duplex.
Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity broke ground on this site in the fall of 2015 purchased by two single parent families.
Megan McDonough, of Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity told 22News, “We think it’s a really great opportunity. Single parent households can’t afford the dream of home ownership but their kids deserve it as much as a two parent household.”
Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity typically sell houses for $120,000 dollars depending on construction costs.This was the second time Yankee home improvement has partnered with Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity to build a home. The Habitat for Humanity will also provide the families with zero interest on the mortgages for up to 30 years.
