SUMMARY:

Construct Inc. provides comprehensive housing, support and educational services to anyone in the Southern Berkshire region who has lost his or her home or who lacks financial resources to maintain safe, decent and affordable housing.

We are dedicated to helping those in need to rebuild their lives. We provide not only the basics of food, transitional housing and emergency financial assistance, but also adult education and counseling for life skills, employment and housing so people can make the successful transition to lead self-sufficient lives.

With a small highly skilled staff and committed volunteers, Construct leverages time, talent, money, technology and long-standing community relationships to support our mission and projects. The bulk of our annual income comes from individual donors.

We invite you to help us shape a future for the thousands of residents in the region who lack the simple comfort of a roof over their heads. Help us eradicate homelessness in south Berkshire County.
