The headquarters of the Buzzards Bay Habitat for Humanity has changed locations, moving from a space behind the fire station on Route 6 to a more visible spot on the same road, said executive director Christine Lacourse. “The space is about the same, but it’s a much better location,” she said. The local branch of Habitat for Humanity serves eight towns, including Marion, Mattapoisett, Rochester, and Wareham. Habitat builds homes with volunteer labor and donations of land, money, and materials, as well as 300 hours of “sweat equity” from each Habitat family. The homes are then sold to the family at no profit and are financed with no-interest loans. Buzzards Bay Habitat for Humanity has build eight homes over the years, Lacourse said, with groundbreaking for the ninth, in Marion, scheduled for fall.
