On Saturday, February 3, Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven held a groundbreaking at 387 Lenox Street. The future home of the Sanchez family may not look like a gem now but family members, friends, and lots of Habitat volunteers are ready to roll up their sleeves and make this home shine!

387 Lenox Street was built in the 1830’s as the home of Merritt Brown, an oyster fishing captain. The home is located within the Quinnipiac River Historic District of New Haven (in the Fair Haven Heights Neighborhood). The project is being sponsored by Raise the Roof, a community build within our Habitat affiliate. Everyone is looking forward to getting started on this restoration!
