Our Next Steps in The Buttonwood Gateway Project

Habitat for Humanity of Berks County is pleased to announce that on September 22nd they will officially Break Ground on the Miltimore Street Project, the next step in the ongoing Buttonwood Gateway Project. “This project includes three city blocks, the 200 Block of West Buttonwood Street, the 400 block of Tulpehocken Street and now, the 400 block of Miltimore Street.” explained Executive Director Tim Daley. “We are creating neighborhoods that people will want to live in and enjoy the community around them.”

Miltimore Street Project Ground Breaking September  22nd, 10 a.m. at the 400 Block of Miltimore Street

There will be eleven newly constructed homes on Miltimore Street. People who are interested in applying for one of these homes are encouraged to attend one of our Monthly First Time Home Buyer Classes with Director of Family Services, Eneida Powell.

“Our community partners are vital to the success of Habitat Berks,” said Daley. “Our construction costs have increased, but so has the need for affordable housing, and we are thankful for the timely support of all our sponsors.”

The Buttonwood Gateway Project is designed to establish a healthy and supportive family environment with overall improvements to the quality of life in that neighborhood.

“The work is not done yet,” Daley said, “Our community should know there is always a chance to get involved, and partner with Habitat For Humanity” If your company would like to partner with Habitat Berks on the Miltimore Street project or other upcoming projects, please contact Iris Bellman at ibellman@habitatberks.org or 610-373-3439.

About Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of Berks County (Habitat) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that believes all people deserve a decent life and the power to build their own futures. Habitat exists to create affordable home ownership opportunities for moderate income families. Families who purchase Habitat for Humanity homes must contribute 200 hours of sweat equity. Habitat relies on volunteers and families contributing sweat equity for the unskilled labor needed to build the homes. Working in this way, they believe they provide families a hand up rather than a hand out, while also providing a way for people to assist hard-working families in our community.
