Merger creates new Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of Southeastern Connecticut has a new name and a new habitat.

The nonprofit low-income housing group has merged with Habitat for Humanity of Northeast Connecticut in order to serve more families throughout the region. The new name is Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut, and the merger went into effect July 1, according to a newsletter sent out Tuesday.

The affiliate serves New London County and eastern Windham County.

The organization now reaches as far north as Woodstock and Thompson. Putnam, Pomfret, Killingly, Plainfield, Sterling and Brooklyn are the other towns now encompassed under the new name.
