Welcome Home Baptista Family!
We dedicated a home to a new family!

It was a beautiful day last Sunday as we dedicated and welcomed the Baptista family into their new home. This story is truly about the American dream. Two years ago, Luis and his mother (Carol) came to the United States to escape the oppression of the now socialist country of Venezuela. With the help of his aunt Judy, they had a place to stay while creating a solid work foundation. Within a short period of time, Luis was able to get a job at General Dynamics that helped pave the way for the rest of his family to come here. While Luis was here getting things ready, his wife and three daughters had remained in Venezuela enduring a poor economy and several interviews by customs and immigrations. After spending thousands of dollars, and a year later, they were able to come legally to the U.S. They came just in time to celebrate their first Independence Day!! Luis, his mother and his daughters are duel citizens and his wife is now a legal resident with the dream of becoming a US citizen.
We wish the family lots of luck and new memories.!!
Thankyou to the Volunteers...

We had a busy month filled with Team Build Volunteers that came out from The Hershey Company, AAA, LLB Architects, and our Bryant Habitat Campus Chapter.
A Team Build is when a company sponsors volunteers to come out to build on one of our sites. It's a great way for companies and employees to give back to the community, build confidence amongst co-workers, learn new skills and of course, build safe, decent affordable homes for first time low-income homeowners.

If your business would like to sponsor a build day, please contact volunteer@habitatriwestbay.org . This is a wonderful way to give back to community and build team comradery with your employees. click HERE for our brochure.

We Are Building!!!
We are building in Burrillville and later this year in Woonsocket. If you are looking to learn new skills or put your homebuilding experience to work, this is a great volunteer opportunity.  We are also looking for people to help make lunches and deliver to the sites. It doesn't always take bronze to volunteer!
As part of our Veteran Build Program, volunteering with Habitat is a great way to help reintegrate back into society. We could use your skills and discipline, while you help build along side people in your community. Have a new mission, see a house to completion!
Are you a company that wants to sponsor a Team Build Day? We build on Saturdays, but can make special arrangements for a Team Build during the week. Donations help us pay for materials, our site supervisor, lunch and T-shirts. We can create a special link with group photos to share with coworkers.

For any of these volunteer opportunities, email volunteer@habitatriwestbay.org
For Veterans!!! We are taking applications for a brand new home that we will be building in Woonsocket and Burrillville.
