N. Pleasant Duplex

ACLT is partnering with Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity to build an affordable duplex on North Pleasant Street. We are on track for a Summer 2018 move-in!!

Volunteer build days are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, with food hospitality on Tuesdays. Volunteer orientation is required, next offered on Saturday January 20, Wednesday, February 7, Saturday, February 17. To volunteer, sign up here.

Thanks to generous support from the Amherst Community Preservation Act Commitee, Amherst Town Meeting, and the Interfaith Housing Corporation of Amherst, the land has been purchased and the project is well underway.  The walls are up, the electricity and plumbing are almost done.
