Habitat Cape Cod news & updates
November 2020
Thank You!
Lewis Brothers Homemade Ice Cream in Provincetown donated all proceeds from their last day of the season to Habitat Cape Cod!

This generous gesture was in memory of their friend Joe Buteau and raised over $2,000. Joe's widow Shari, is a long-time Habitat friend and volunteer, and was so moved, she matched the donation!

Bringing everyone together to help build affordable homes on Cape Cod is what Habitat is all!

Thank you Lewis Brother’s Ice Cream Owner David, Manager Beverly and Shari for being such sweet supporters!
Congratulations to the winner of our 2020 Kayak Raffle, Janez Hicks of Mashpee! We are very thankful to all who participated in this fundraiser for Habitat Cape Cod.

We owe a very special thanks to Pat Taylor and Bill Witmer for once again creating and promoting such a special and much anticipated event to support our mission to build homes, hope, lives and community on Cape Cod.

This is the last kayak Pat and Bill will build for Habitat Cape Cod; they have passed the torch on to a new Habitat volunteer, John Amirault.

John is busy working on our 2021 kayak, which is sure to be a thing of beauty!

Town News
Orleans. Quanset Road.  We continue to make progress on our two-bedroom home at 15 Quanset Road. The walls are going up any day now, and we are very excited to work with our selected home buyer building her home.    
Sandwich. Cotuit Road and Nauset Street.  We continue to wait for a Land Court approved subdivision plan for Cotuit Road. We had good news at our Sandwich Selectboard appearance on Thursday, October 22nd where the board unanimously affirmed the conditional transfer of nitrogen credits from Evsun Road to Nauset Street.  We will soon finalize our Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) application and submit to the Town of Sandwich.
Chatham. George Ryder Road South. Our “no appeal” period has expired, and we will record the decision and soon close on the land.  We plan to begin infrastructure work on this project beginning in the late fall 2021 with a wall raising in 2022.
Brewster. 26 Red Top Road. On August 27th the Brewster Housing Partnership unanimously supported our Red Top Road project.  We are planning two homes on this site. One of the homes will have a veteran preference, meaning priority will be given to a veteran and/or veteran’s family (pending Department of Housing and Community Development approval).  We will submit our LIP (Local Initiative Project) application to Brewster’s Board of Selectmen at their December 21st meeting. Following our LIP application approval, the next step will be to take this 40B project to Brewster ZBA. 
Harwich. Murray Lane.  The 6 foundations are underway!  If all goes as planned, we will raise walls at Murray Lane in May or June 2021. Applications for the homes were opened on October 1, 2020, with an application deadline of December 1st.
Falmouth. Willett Way.  We are still waiting for Building permits for this 10-home project.  When the permits are issued, we will begin putting in the foundations. We will raise walls at Willett Way in June 2021 (6 homes) and May 2022 (4 homes). 

We continue our assessment of a number of sites in towns across the Cape. We are always on the lookout for suitable sites for Habitat homes. If you would like to consider the donation of a parcel of property, or know of a town owned site that might be suitable, please contact Beth Wade, Director of Land Acquisition & Project Development, at or leave a message at

Monthly Giving
Sometimes it is much easier to give $25 a month instead of a lump sum of $300. Habitat can charge your card each month until you want to stop, get a new card, or need to change the amount at any time.
