South Shore Habitat for Humanity offers a hand-up, not a hand-out. Our partnership program includes educational workshops to equip new homeowners with the skills necessary to be active members of their communities. Habitat Family Partners are selected based on their ability to pay, willingness to partner and demonstrated need for adequate housing.
