Tewksbury Home Build (THB) began work as a small group of members at Tewksbury Congregational Church in 2014 and quickly grew to include members from all corners of the Tewksbury community, incorporating in 2015 as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Since those early days, THB has focused on building strong relationships with the Town of Tewksbury, local faith organizations, local businesses, and other local and regional non-profits.
Initially, THB served as a sponsor of a Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell (HfHGL) Build on State Street (Completed in 2015). After that project, the organization submitted a response to a public RFP process for 2.87 acres on South Street. Working with HfHGL, THB subdivided the lot into 3 lots. THB maintained ownership of the original home and led a renovation process that was completed in June of 2018. Concurrently, HfHGL constructed a home on one of the subdivided lots.
THB completed the construction of the third and final home on South Street in partnership with Shawsheen Valley Technical High School in the Fall of 2020. This home was sold as an affordable unit in early 2022.
While the South Street project was underway, THB also acquired a piece of land on Main Street. This property will be developed in partnership with Soldier On into a veterans' housing project with construction to begin Spring 2023.
