GUILFORD – Chenango County Habitat for Humanity (CCHH) has been settling into their new office space located in the Klee House in Guilford, a change of scenery from Oxford. Since their last house build in West Bainbridge, the nonprofit has focused on a number of small projects that have had a substantial impact on several Chenango county families.
One more recent project was a labor-intensive bathroom renovation needed to meet unmet needs of a disabled adult, and prior to that the lives of many area families have been touched by the hands of a the dedicated group of volunteers. Here’s a look back.
Going back as far as 2012, CCHH came to the aid of a mother of five, facing a terminal illness, in nearby Norwich. Habitat's crew prioritized essential repairs and re-roofed the family's home which had seen years of neglect. With additional funding leftover, the team put its resourcefulness to task and rebuilt a aging carport, increasing the accessibility of the home.
