WEYMOUTH, Mass. - Feb. 12, 2019 - TelAve -- South Shore Habitat for Humanity (http://sshabitat.org), which has delivered quality housing in partnership with families in need for the past 32 years, is the recipient of a $15,000 HarborOne Foundation award to support the construction of up to two single family affordable homes in the town of Hingham.

The HarborOne Foundation was created in 2016 to support the work of community non-profits including those organizations that promote educational opportunity, create access to safe and affordable housing and provide basic human services to our most vulnerable citizens.

"We thank HarborOne for their ongoing support of our mission and for this generous award," said Martine Taylor, Executive Director for South Shore Habitat for Humanity. "As a community bank HarborOne makes our community a better place to live. It is through the generosity of our businesses and individuals that we are able to continue to build homes."

"The HarborOne Foundation is a vital part of our commitment to give back to the communities in which we live and work," said Joseph Casey, President and COO of HarborOne Bank. "We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with organizations in our communities who work vigorously to improve the lives of children and families."

About South Shore Habitat for Humanity

The Mission of South Shore Habitat for Humanity is to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter by partnering with families in need of affordable housing.  Families put in "sweat equity hours" alongside local volunteers on the building of their home and purchase the home with a 30-year, affordable mortgage. Homes do have a deed restriction that maintains the affordability status of each home in perpetuity. Habitat Family Partners are selected through a competitive underwriting process based on their ability to pay, willingness to partner, and their need for adequate housing. The organization's headquarters are located at 20 Mathewson Drive in Weymouth, MA but they serve 35 cities and towns south and southwest of Boston. To date, South Shore Habitat for Humanity has delivered 58 homes to local families on the South Shore. Currently, the organization has a strategic plan to build twelve homes by 2020, which is on pace to deliver another 58 homes in a little less than a decade.
