After the Rutland Region branch of Habitat for Humanity closed in 2002, we are excited to announce that a steering committee was formed and has brought Habitat back to the Rutland region!
The group successfully completed the affiliation process and has been granted approval to use the name Habitat for Humanity of Rutland County, Vermont. This is no small achievement. To do this, a steering committee organized and completed the process, members enrolled in the Habitat e-courses, an area needs assessment was done, and $2,000 was raised and used for the Habitat for Humanity International affiliation fee.
Rutland County officially became a Habitat Affiliate on July 1, 2014! The board is pictured with Governor Shumlin.

Homes Completed to date: Five homes were completed before the affiliate closed in 2002. We are happy to say that this number increased after the new affiliate finished a single-family home in the fall of 2016 that it renovated in Fair Haven. The affiliate is focused on securing the funds it needs to build on property that it has acquired on Cleveland Avenue in Rutland City. Resources permitting, the affiliate plans to break ground in the late spring of 2017.
