      On February 9, we celebrated the dedication of the home of Laye Camara and Fatoumata Sylla, Raise the Roof‘s sixteenth sponsored Habitat build. On the same day, we celebrated a groundbreaking on the future home of Armando and Rosalie Hernandez, Raise the Roof’s seventeenth sponsored build, at 2 Button Street. The building of a house has been completed, and work on another begins. View photos for both special occasions: the home dedication and story of our 39 Elliott Street build here and breaking ground at Button Street here.

      Donations to Raise the Roof may be made in honor of friends and family. Give others the opportunity to be part of Raise the Roof’s Habitat mission and a family’s journey to build and own a home. Gift recipients will receive ecards with your personal messages. Learn more here.

      In accordance with the extension of Governor Lamont’s “Stay Safe, Stay Home" order, all volunteer activities on build sites and at the ReStore have been cancelled through May 20. Raise the Roof and Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven will keep you updated. For now, we look for opportunities to help in ways that honor safely building our community and world back to a healthy place.
