What is the Building Foundations Program?
The Building Foundations program was established in 2016, with funding from local community grants. Through this program, participants receive a voucher to shop at the Waterville Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Building Foundations vouchers help low-income individuals and families access basic household items.
Some participants need a wide variety of items, such as furniture and kitchen goods (e.g. pots, pans, and dishware). Other participants are in need of one specific item, for example a new refrigerator or water heater. And others are in need of basic building supplies in order to do their own home construction projects.
Building Foundations is administered through the Kennebec Valley Community Action Program (KVCAP), working in collaboration with the Greater Waterville Poverty Action Coalition and the Waterville Area Habitat for Humanity.
