Endorsed by the National Association of Home Builders, the Home Builders Blitz supports Habitat’s vision of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
As part of this nationwide event, Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity built two houses in one week on Acton Street, in the lower Tower Hill section of Lawrence, MA. This build marked the 3rd time since 2006 that our affiliate has participated in a Home Builders Blitz. The labor and materials for these homes are donated by local builders and vendors so that the homes can be built by a professional team, in one week, at a highly reduced cost. The project continues Merrimack Valley Habitat’s transformation of the 22 communities we serve, where we have already built 92 homes over the last 30 years.
