Partnership with Habitat for Humanity

Aging in Place Homeowner Ann with her sweet dog, Henry. (February 2021)

In spite of the pandemic and its impact on Habitat’s volunteer labor force, the first two of eight Deerfield-sponsored Aging in Place (AIP) homes are nearing completion with key ceremonies scheduled for August. Habitat’s commitment to provide housing for older adults in a challenging housing market is inspirational. Two of our very own Deerfield residents have had the privilege of working on these homes and have returned with a wonderful sense of excitement and anticipation. The next two homeowners have been chosen for AIP homes #3 and #4 and these worthy folks are hard at work on their sweat equity hours! We plan to take interested residents on a “field trip” to see these homes in person later this summer.
