Financial Freedom Center

Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity’s building projects are aimed at tackling the unmet need of decent, affordable housing in the Greater Hartford Community. Hartford Habitat's homeownership program serves families that do not qualify for a conventional mortgage.  In the past, our strategic plan focused on number of homes built. In 2014, as part of our new strategic plan, Hartford Habitat moved to a “Families Served” model. Moving to this model allows us to measure our community impact on the number of families we serve, along with the number of homes we build.

In June we will officially open the Financial Freedom Center located at 780 Windsor Street in Hartford.  The Financial Freedom Center will serve as a resource for our adult homeowners, and eventually all of Greater Hartford, by offering workshops on financial literacy, college financial aid and saving plans. The new Financial Freedom Center ensures that we can help more adult members of our community achieve the dream of having a safe and decent place to call "Home”.
