With your gifts, Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County has been transforming neighborhoods and building better lives. Your gifts not only help build homes, but they also fund the educational services that teach our families about budgeting, everyday finance and conflict resolution.


There are many ways to get involved with Habitat CFC. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are the lifeblood of our organization. Whether you are interested in swinging a hammer, organizing a fundraiser, or serving on a committee, we welcome your participation.

I write this note while awaiting the arrival of this year’s first major winter storm. I don’t know what will actually come to pass, but the predictions are dire enough to cause concern and I have heard of several events already being cancelled or postponed, though not a drop of snow has yet fallen on any of our volunteers or the ten Habitat CFC homes currently under construction.

I am one of those stubborn people who never truly believes that a storm is coming until it actually arrives. I have suffered many a long and frightening drive on snow covered roads, because I admittedly tend to ignore the warnings until it’s too late. The truth is that I take my chances with the confidence that comes from knowing that my long and treacherous journey will eventually end at my home. I am blessed with a warm and welcoming place to huddle safely with my family, when one wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Sadly, not everyone is quite so blessed.

It is a very real tragedy that there are hard-working families in our community watching an approaching storm with the anxiety that comes from not having an acceptable, secure place to be. There are parents and children in Fairfield County wondering what they will do when the temperature drops, when utilities can’t be counted on, when public facilities close and they need shelter from the storm. This is unacceptable. Habitat for Humanity is driven by the conviction that everyone deserves a decent, safe and stable place to call home. This is the motivation that keeps us going and we’re sincerely grateful for your help.

Wishing you safety, security and warmth,

Our Women Build program challenges women to address the issue of substandard housing and encourages them to get involved by taking the lead on construction of new Habitat homes and helping more women become homeowners.

Habitat for Heroes


The Veterans Build Initiative works to provide home ownership opportunities to veterans of all service branches in the Coastal Fairfield area. Our partner families are service members who have been honorably discharged, and are working to build a better life for their families.
