Energy Efficient Education

Midcoast Habitat for Humanity weatherized 10 Knox County, Maine homes in winter 2013 through a new program that allows us to help even more families in need.

Maine is home to the oldest housing stock in the country, and many families who have made the leap to home ownership still struggle to heat and maintain their homes. Our Step One Weatherization Program provides cost-effective energy efficiency measures, including weather-stripping, pipe insulation, and basic air sealing, to low-income households.  Homeowners learn about energy efficiency and invest 25 hours of sweat equity in exchange for the improvements, which have a two-day, $500 cap.

The program will eventually expand to tackle more advanced, customized efficiency measures based on the recommendations of qualified energy auditors. Interested in contributing to Step One’s success and laying the groundwork for Step Two? Join our Weatherization effort and help make a big difference.

Phase II of Philbrick Commons is almost Complete!

Last year, five wonderful homeowners, who partnered with Midcoast Habitat, purchased their small, affordable home in this pocket-neighborhood. Before year end, the remaining 7 homeowners will hold the keys to their home.  In September, we will host a home dedication and celebration in the neighborhood and the homeowners will be able to invite their friends and family. The second phase is expected to be finished by late fall 2023.

Throughout the year, there are many local groups from the community, as well as from other states volunteering their time to support affordable housing in Knox County.

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, as an individual or group, please email, admin@midcoasthabitat.org or call (207) 236-6123.

The Homeowner Support and Selection Committee is currently reviewing applications for future partner families. If you are interested in partnering with Midcoast Habitat for Humanity and owning a safe, affordable home in Knox County, please contact Midcoast Habitat at 207- 236-6123 or complete an online application.
