Habitat accepting applications for Neighbor to Neighbor program. 

AMBER TOWNSHIP — Habitat for Humanity of Mason County is currently accepting applications for its fall Neighbor to Neighbor Revitalization (N2N) program scheduled to take place Oct. 8, 9, and 10.

N2N is an exterior home preservation program that offers painting, carpentry, landscaping, weather stripping, siding, roofing, door/window replacement and minor exterior repairs for homeowners in need.  The program helps low-income homeowners impacted by age, disability, and family circumstances who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes, reclaim their homes with pride and dignity. In its third year, the program is designed to revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, encourage connections within the community, and most importantly, help preserve affordable housing stock

“Neighbor to Neighbor is about connecting people and restoring homes through simple acts of kindness so that homeowners can once again live in a safe and decent home,” said Jamie Healy, executive director of Habitat for Humanity. “This program would not be possible without volunteers, contractors and donors who are willing to go out of their way to care for those around us and greet people just beyond their doorstep.”

Volunteer registration is available at www.volunteerwestmichigan.com, by contacting Habitat direct at 231 843-7888, or emailing hfh.masoncounty@gmail.com.  Contractors are also being sought.

To be considered for the program, submit a one-page application to Habitat for Humanity of Mason County (available at the Habitat ReStore, the Lakeshore Resource Network, N2N Facebook page or online at PFHF.org/n2n) by Sept. 21, 2018.  Once a homeowners eligibility is determined and their application is accepted, Habitat for Humanity of Mason County will provide a caring group of volunteers to come alongside and assist the homeowner in completing repairs.

The Neighbor to Neighbor, Neighborhood Revitalization Project is hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Mason County and supported by the Pennies from Heaven Foundation, United Way of Mason County, the Community Foundation for Mason County and community donors.
