When you make a donation to Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, your gift makes a long-term impact. Each donation that builds a Habitat home multiplies as the homeowner mortgage payments get recycled to build more affordable houses. Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity has a proven track record of wise building investments, well-equipped families for homeownership, and strong financial viability.
