Habitat for Humanity/ 7 Rivers Maine creates successful homeownership opportunities for families with limited incomes by building sustainable housing and repairing and weatherizing existing homes.
Early in 2006, our affiliate's Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers met for two days to talk about the housing needs in our community and set goals for the organization’s future. After much discussion, several decisions were made and goals were set. The first major decision was to expand the service area to include the towns in Lincoln County that were not being served by any Habitat for Humanity affiliate. Now, the official service area of the affiliate is Brunswick and Harpswell in Cumberland County, all of Sagadahoc County, and all of Lincoln County, a total of 31 towns with more than 98,000 individuals, comprising more than 41,000 households. Our affiliate name 7 Rivers Maine is a derivation of seven of our service area's rivers; Cathance, Androscoggin, Kennebec, Sheepscot, Damariscotta, New Meadows, and Medomak.
This will be the 19th year of building with families in need.
If your family, or a family you know, is in need of decent, affordable housing, please check our Request Application page where you will find information on the availability, size, costs, and sweat equity requirements for HFH/7RM houses, as well as information on the application process.
Habitat and its Affiliates
Habitat is a grass-roots movement. Concerned citizens from all walks of life come together as volunteers to form a Habitat affiliate in their community. Fundraising, house construction, family selection and other key decisions are carried out by the local affiliates. HFHI headquarters, located in Americus, Ga., provides information, training, support and other services to Habitat affiliates worldwide.
