Hamden CT is selling the old Maselli farmhouse to the Greater New Haven Habitat For Humanity. Habitat for Humanity will rebuild the home and give it to a low- to moderate-income Hamden CT family to live in the house. The family would pay taxes and a mortgage, and the mortgage would be held by Habitat at no interest.
Habitat For Humanity builds and rehabilitates homes in the Greater New Haven area with the goal of creating safe, decent, affordable houses that add to the revitalization of New Haven’s neighborhoods. Habitat accomplishes its mission by partnering with individuals, religious and civic organizations, local business and corporations.
