Habitat for Humanity has just celebrated its 25th anniversary of building homes in the Metro West Greater Worcester Community.

In those 25 years, Habitat for Humanity (HFH) has built 30 homes and has helped 42 adults and 70 children with permanent shelter.

They are currently building a duplex in Boylston and the two families have recently been selected. One family consists of a single mother with two children and the other has two parents with two children. The families are expected to move into the house in the fall.

In April, HFH will break ground for the Tri-Community Build in Sturbridge.

"The Tri-Community Build is where three communities that have taken a vested interest in building a home," said Chrissie Jones, representative for HFH. "Those communities are Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton. Applications are being received now for the single-family home. The selection of the family will take place in April as well."
