Habitat for Humanity Dedicates Four Homes to Chatham Families

CHATHAM – Habitat for Humanity dedicated four homes to Chatham families during a ceremony on Thursday.

More than 140 community volunteers worked with the future homeowner families during the phases of construction.

The homes were built behind the Cape Cod Fishermen’s Alliance building on Main Street in Chatham.

The ceremony was also a chance for the homeowners to thank the volunteers who helped work to build the structures.

Jean-Claude Butter and his family were presented with one of the homes.

He said he was thankful for the community’s support.

“I am so happy and so grateful and thankful for the volunteers, for Habitat, for the community,” said Butter. “We are so happy.”

Each family was presented with a quilt by the Cape Cod Quilt Guild and a bookcase as housewarming gifts.

Having the help of the community to make owning a home possible for Butter, made a big impact on him and his family.  

“That shows me that here on Cape Cod, we’re never alone, we are one community and everybody sticks together, everybody supports each other,” said Butter. “This is great, this is wonderful.”

Planning and building the homes took place over a year, according to Habitat for Humanity Cape Cod Executive Director Vicki Goldsmith.

“Each family worked so hard on their home and their neighbors’ home,” said Goldsmith.

Final inspections of the homes will take place next week.
