      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.

      As of Monday, March 16, all volunteering at Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven build sites, including Raise the Roof’s sponsored build at 2 Button Street and the ReStore, has been cancelled through Sunday, April 12. Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven will re-evaluate at that time with guidance from the CDC, local health officials, and Habitat for Humanity International. For now, we look for opportunities to help in ways that honor safely building our community and world back to a healthy place.
