For over five years we have been the first stop for a group of Bike & Builders. It’s always a pleasure to host a group of these young, enthusiastic folks and to work with them our build site.
This year they helped us spiff up a house we inherited in Hampton Falls.
After a quick blessing of their bikes at the New Castle beach, they headed off across the country, to continue building and spreading the word about the need for affordable housing.
You can follow their continued adventures on their facebook page, we are.
Bike & Build is a national non-profit organization that works to provide affordable housing and empowers young adults for a lifetime of service and civic engagement. Each year a group of participants bikes across the country, making stops in many cities and towns where they temporarily trade their bikes for hammers and work on the construction of an affordable home with a local housing organization.
During National Women Build Week we invite local women to devote at least one day to help families build strength, stability and independence through housing. The week is meant to spotlight the homeownership challenges faced by women.
This is a hands-on project where our volunteers (men and women) will be engaged in construction and landscaping for a single family home in Middleton NH. Volunteers from throughout southeastern New Hampshire will be coming out to spend a day improving the lives of others. Along with the help of these volunteers and Lowes of Rochester we will be completing a home in Middleton on May 11 and 13.
If you would like to join us please send an email to Karen at email@example.com or call 603-433-9555.

A couple of weeks ago we had our annual “Ask Event” at the 100 Club in Portsmouth. As usual the setting, food, drink and company were all phenomenal! One of our volunteers, Brian Tarbell, created this slideshow for the event. If you couldn’t make it to the party you can still see what we’ve been up to over the past year. Thanks Brian!
Please join us on Saturday, September 17, at 10:00am for a Key Ceremony and House Blessing for our newest partner families! We will be celebrating at 10 Glen St. in Rochester – come take a tour of the home and meet the Nickerson Family and the Waldie Family!This is what Habitat for Humanity is all about and it is you, our donors and our volunteers that make this possible.
