Work begins on our newest home build!
Our newest build at 88 Holman St. Attleboro has started!
Thank you to the Tree Tech, Inc. crew for clearing trees on the property.
Old Colony Habitat for Humanity has selected a partner family to help construct and purchase the next Habitat home to be built in Attleboro, Mass. After an extensive interview and screening process, Ms. Sandra Hovagimian of North Attleboro, Mass was selected to be the next Habitat homeowner. As part of the agreement with Old Colony habitat, Ms. Hovagimian will participate in the construction of her home to be built at 88 Holman Street. She will work side by side with other volunteers each week, throughout the construction process. The house is expected to be completed by March of 2017.
When completed, Sandra will take ownership of her new home with her two sons and will receive a no interest loan through Old Colony Habitat.
For information on how to volunteer with habitat on the Attleboro House Build, please contact Manny Cunard at 860-316-8827 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers are needed throughout the construction process for both skilled and unskilled jobs. Come join us and help eliminate sub-standard housing in Bristol and Norfolk County.
The Attleboro house build has received generous sponsorship and support from the following local businesses and organizations: Bristol County Savings Bank, Mansfield Bank, CVS Health, Webster Bank, Dennis Colwell Architects, Plainridge Park Casino, HarborOne Bank, Tree Tech, Inc., and Distributor Corporation of New England (for all Carrier HVAC products).
Old Colony Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Our mission is to build simple, decent, affordable homes for families who would otherwise not be able to afford home ownership. We are committed to ending sub-standard housing in Bristol and Norfolk Counties, one house at a time.
“Being a community bank, it is a core principle of ours to support the neighborhoods where our customers live and work so we look forward to seeing firsthand the good work these not-for-profit organizations will do throughout the area with the grants provided,” said Patrick J. Murray Jr., president and CEO of BCSB and president of the BCSCF.

Old Colony Habitat for Humanity held the Grand Opening of its new ReStore on Saturday, February 20th. 150 volunteers plus State Senator James Timilty, State Representative Paul Heroux and Mayor Kevin Dumas attended. Each presented a proclamation recognizing the grand opening.
A ReStore is a retail store that accepts donations of new and gently used building materials, appliances and furniture and resells them at a significant reduction. The proceeds are used to fund the activities of Old Colony Habitat, including an Attleboro home build scheduled to begin in March. Many items are donated by companies such as Lowe’s, CVS, Staples, Hampton Inn and Miller Recycling. Our inventory is constantly changing as new donations arrive.
Donations can be brought to the store Tuesday thru Saturday or call 508-639-9577 to schedule a pick-up.
We welcome volunteers at ReStore , please call 508-639-9577 to join us.
The ReStore is open for sales Wednesday thru Saturday from 10:00am – 6:00pm.
