How House Sponsors Make a Difference
It costs us more than $120,000 to build a simple, decent home in the Greater New Haven area. Sponsorship of a Habitat house turns a family’s dream into a reality. Sponsorship of a single home is $50,000. You, your community, or your company can sponsor a Habitat house by agreeing to raise $50,000 over two years. You can also participate in the building of that home, along with other volunteers and the family, so that you can experience the joy and personal satisfaction of “Building communities… one house, one family at a time”.
Habitat holds its annual Summer Party on the Shore fundraising event every June. Habitat families, volunteers, donors, house sponsors and other supporters celebrate Habitat’s achievements, and Habitat recognizes individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to our home building program. The event features fine food and wine, a silent auction, and live music. Inquiries regarding future event sponsorship or donation of an item for the silent auction may be addressed to Jennifer Rook, Habitat’s Director of Development, at email@example.com.
