2014 World Habitat Day Work Continues
On World Habitat Day, the first Monday in October, Habitat for Humanity joined the United Nations and organizations around the world in raising awareness, educating and mobilizing individuals and communities to take action on the current global housing crisis. Housing is central to ending the cycle of poverty. We want to see a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and so, on World Habitat Day, we called for programs, policies and systems that would make that world possible. You can still sign the petition to add your voice in support of the common vision of ending poverty housing across the globe.
Building Fire Safe Homes in Hanover
South Shore Habitat was pleased to host supporters of home fire sprinklers at the Center Street, Hanover build site as sprinkler installation on the two new homes began.
Joining us was the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and the Massachusetts Fire Sprinkler Coalition, the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA). NFPA President Jim Pauley took part in assisting professionals with the installation, which will take no more than a couple days to complete. Also in attendance was coalition chair Mary Regan, chief of the Westfield Fire Department, and David LaFond with NFSA, which assisted in obtaining the materials and labor for the installation.
"This type of partnership is essential to the success of our homebuilding efforts," says Martine Taylor, South Shore Habitat's executive director. "These contributions enable us to help families move out of unsafe and substandard housing and into decent, affordable homes of their own."
