HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

Habitat for Humanity Mission:habitat_logo_3
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities with people in need by building and renovating houses so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which every person can experience God’s love and can live and grow into all that God intends.

We are fortunate to have a Habitat Re-Store on Providence St. in Putnam, where slightly used building & home supplies can be purchased, inexpensively.

 

HEIFER PROJECT

Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth. 

By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope.  With gifts of livestock and training, we help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. We refer to the animals as “living loans” because in exchange for their livestock and training, families agree to give one of its animal’s offspring to another family in need. It’s called Passing on the Gift – a cornerstone of our mission that creates an ever-expanding network of hope and peace.
