A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes. We empower people to become homeowners and train them and encourage them and help them succeed.
Talk to any of our 37 home owners. They are our shining examples of how people can change and grow. They have, without exception, created better lives for themselves and their children.
Here we see Carolyn Valli ceremoniously handing over the home key to Sheerece Adams, our new homeowner! It was a special night for everyone who attended, and a special moment in Shereece's life. You can read her story here.
Our Mission Statement
Seeking to put God's love into action, Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
About Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity
Founded in 1992, Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization that builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. As of fall 2015, we have built and rehabilitated 29 homes for 37 families in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
People partner with Habitat to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, voulnteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
All are welcome
Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.
As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
