Habitat for Humanity of Berks County Project Updates

Work in progress at 666 Tulpehocken Street

Work in Progress…

Habitat volunteers including Penske and staff are currently rehabilitating 666 Tulpehocken Street in Reading. The Penske Remarketing Sales group sponsored the 666 Tulpehocken Street property.

Habitat is making its presence known on Tulpehocken Street and the surrounding area in 2017 and we are calling this area NoBu (North of Buttonwood).

Habitat also recently took possession of 648 and 638 Tulpehocken Street and 261 W. Buttonwood St. Work on these homes should be finished in 2018.

All homes will be completely gutted and redone using Habitat’s high standards. 

And a completed project!

140 Oley Street, a rehabilitation project initiated by Habitat and made possible by generous volunteers and their hard work, is complete. This 2000-square foot restored Victorian home is equipped with three bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, an updated pantry and a study.  

Roberto De La Paz, Tania Rosero and their three daughters Raquel (pictured), Carmen and Genesis are set to move in. Determined to provide their daughters with a home of their own and build strength, stability and self-reliance, they completed their 300 sweat equity hours including 75 hours in the education program
