Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor Accepting Applications 

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor has a new goal in mind.Usually the program builds a house per year for those in need. This year the group wants to build two homes. Habitat’s Amanda Charette says the need for homes is greater then ever since the region’s Habitat chapter began in 1988.Bangor Habitat is accepting applications through the end of the month from those who wish to be considered for the newest home.Charette points out the Habitat program isn’t a free house. There are a lot of requirements for the families that move in. Amanda Charette, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Bangor: “They have to have some type of income they have to put 250 hours of sweat equity whether it be here at the store or building their house and they have to buy a home for themselves or they’re in inadequate housing.”Families that wish to learn more can email [email protected] or call the volunteers hotline 942-8977.
