Our Projects

Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod has built 142 affordable homes in all 15 towns on Cape Cod.

In 2017, we completed construction of 12 homes in Mashpee, Yarmouth and Chatham.  In 2018, we completed construction 6 homes on Paul Hush Way, Brewster and 3 homes in Truro. In 2019, we completed 4 homes in Marstons Mills and 3 homes in Dennis. In 2019, we also sent a team of volunteers to build a home in Chacala, Mexico!

This year we are building 8 homes in Brewster, 2 homes in Wellfleet and 1 home in Mashpee.

On the Drawing Board

93-97 Route 28, Harwich

We are permitted to build a 6 affordable home subdivision behind the existing houses at this address. These 2 and 3 bedroom single family homes will be ranch and Cape styles. Infrastructure work began for this project in Fall 2019. Barring unforeseen delays, volunteer construction will begin in Fall 2020. Volunteer construction usually starts 12 - 18 months after we begin infrastructure work.

Barrows Road (now Willett Way) , Falmouth

This 10 home subdivision will be a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom single family, ranch-style homes. Preliminary infrastructure work (road & drainage) was completed in early Fall 2019. Barring unforeseen delays, foundations and septic systems will be put in mid to late summer 2020 with wall raisings planned for 6 homes in May 2021, and 4 homes in September 2021. Volunteer construction usually starts 12 - 18 months after we begin infrastructure work.

Route 6, Truro

181 Route 6, 3 homes - Our 40B Comprehensive Permit approval by the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), was appealed by a neighbor. A trial was held in November 2019 and we are waiting for a judicial decision. We cannot announce a start date for this project until the appeal has been resolved. We expect to have updated information about this project by Summer 2020.

Old Kings Highway, Wellfleet

Old Kings Highway - Our 40B Comprehensive Permit for four homes which was approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) in July 2019 has been appealed by several abutters. We are working our way through the judicial process. We do not expect to have a judgment until Summer 2021. We will provide more information as we are able.

George Ryder Road South, Chatham

We hope to permit two homes (1-3 BR; 1-2 BR) through the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) sometime this Spring (2020). Assuming success, the volunteer build is currently scheduled for late Summer of 2021.

Great Neck Road, Mashpee

We successfully permitted two 3 bedroom homes at 341 Great Neck Road North (now known as Mendes Way) through ZBA in Spring 2019. Infrastructure has started and we plan to raise walls on the homes in June or July 2020.

Sandwich

Following successful feasibility planning, we are entering into the LIP (Local Initiative Project) application phase as the preliminary step to a Spring 2020 ZBA hearing for a three home scatter-site project in Sandwich. More to follow soon.

We are permitted for a "by-right" build of a 2-bedroom ranch style home on Quanset Road in Orleans. Site work will begin in late winter 2020. Barring any unforeseen delays, the volunteer build is scheduled to begin in July or August 2020.
