70 Woolsey Street

  • 70 Woolsey Street in New Haven is the Raise the Roof community’s eighteenth sponsored Habitat build. The family of John and Stephanie Briones have closed on their house, and we look forward to celebrating the dedication of their home on Sunday, August 29. We are full of respect for their accomplishment of building and purchasing this home. The Raise the Roof community was honored to partner with Stephanie and John and help to build.

    Thank you to the many groups below who helped the Briones family build their beautiful house.

  • Thank you to St. Andrew’s youth (above) for their days spent helping at Woolsey Street.

  • Daniel Hand Habitat Club members (photos above) are builders of homes and Habitat ambassadors. We’re full of gratitude and respect.

  • Thank you to the St. John Bosco Parish Youth Ministry group (above) for climbing to new heights to help the Briones family build.

  • Pilgrim Fellowship—a non-denominational community service group for grades 9 through 12 sponsored by First Congregational Church of Guilford—gave their April school break to build. Tuesday through Saturday, PF teams helped to build at Woolsey Street, Raise the Roof’s sponsored build, and Rosette Street, another Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven house. The group also shared a generous gift of funds raised that will help to provide opportunity for future Habitat partner families to build.

  • Thank you to Valley Regional High School Interact students, a power group (above) that gave Saturdays to build at Woolsey Street.

  • The Valley Regional High School Habitat Club brought energy, heart, and smiles to their build days. (Smiles that show even from behind masks.) We’re grateful.

  • The Raise the Roof board builds together in many ways. On this board build day, the work was painting and caulking and helping future homeowner John Briones build his family’s house.

  • The hiking group Intrepids partnered with future homeowner Stephanie for a day of teamwork and accomplishment at 70 Woolsey Street.

  • The Daniel Hand Habitat Club nailed it again on another day of building!

  • Thank you to Knights of Columbus Sacred Heart Council 5780, Madison, CT, for giving a day to build at 70 Woolsey Street, putting hearts and hammers to work.
