The weather is delightful, so why aren’t we building on our regular Thursday and Saturday build days?
Our volunteers do an amazing job building our homes, but we reach a point in every project where we have to let the electricians and plumbers do their work. They generally have the last tasks before we get a series of inspections, and then get the green light to insulate, hang drywall, and finish the homes.
We try to be sure we’re ready for our professionals as quickly as possible, but also have good construction work for individual volunteers like you and our wonderful groups as our spring building season really ramps up.
So you’ll see a few cancelled construction days at Chestnut Street but, rest assured, we’ll have plenty for you to do soon! Be sure to check our Eventbrite website frequently for continued upcoming build days and to register.

He was admitted to practice in the State of New Hampshire in 2004, the U.S. District Court and U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the district of New Hampshire in 2010 and in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2014. Attorney Kelly currently maintains a solo general law practice in Nashua and just completed a nearly two-year engagement working for the New Hampshire Foreclosure Relief project as a staff attorney at The Legal Advice and Referral Center (New Hampshire Legal Aid) in Concord. Attorney Kelly is a past president of the Board of Directors of the Mount Washington Valley Addiction Treatment Solutions, as well as a former board member of the Arts Jubilee and Mount Washington Valley Preservation Association.

Rust. Leaks. Costly repairs. Unreliable. This is the state of our trucks.
But, thanks to a generous donor, Greater Nashua Habitat for Humanity is very close to purchasing two new trucks — one for our ReStore on Amherst Street in Nashua and another for our volunteer home building crew.
We’ve been challenged to match our donor’s generous gift & that’s where we need YOUR $5 donation. Please consider giving up one morning latte and donating $5 to our truck challenge effort!
