Happy Holidays!
This time of year inspires the spirit of giving, and we are so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful and giving friends.

Recently, two Habitat Cape Cod volunteers traveled to Florida to help repair hurricane damaged homes.  A team of 12 volunteered to travel to build a home with a family in Mexico (heading down in March). AND we asked you all for help in the ReStores and with  on-site devotions and boy did you come through! Thank you! 

And... did everyone hear the great news out of Falmouth? 
We were awarded a $70,000 grant in memory of East Falmouth resident and local philanthropist Herbert Willett, to be put toward building 10 affordable homes in Falmouth on a site purchased with a CPC grant.  Read more.

Thank you to our friends Pat Taylor and Bill Witmer for dropping off this handmade and delicious gingerbread house at our office this week!

We've got a great team of 12 volunteers traveling to Nayarit, Mexico to build a home with the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate this March. 

George Bell, Marcia Bissell, Ruth Ferris, Weston Halkyard, Donna Hartnett, Janet Kershaw, Laurie Leitner, Roz Levin, Rosemary Nicholls, Charles Orr, Greg Whiting and Team Leader Tricia Vos are leaving the comfort of the Cape and heading to Nayarit to be a part of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live. 

Please check out their fundraising pages and consider helping them reach their goals!

A home being built as part of Hurricane Matthew recovery
As 2018 comes to an end, we are happy to share the important progress made in Haiti this year. 
  • The homes of 346 individuals in Nippes which sustained damage during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016, were repaired.
  • Through a partnership with the European Union, IOM, CESVI, and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, and as part of Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts, construction workers built 180 homes in Pestel, Corail, and Les Irois. Plans are underway to build additional homes!
  • 172 solar lamps and 948 street signs were installed in Canaan, an area of land north of Port-au-Prince. These neighborhood development projects are vital to the creation of safe, functional communities.
  • Important work around sanitation and hygiene continued with the distribution of 500 hygiene kits and the training of 9,946 individuals in hygiene practices.
