CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Karraine Moody, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of North Central Connecticut.

The organization recently changed its name and now serves families east of the Connecticut River. 

Moody says Habitat does more than build homes, teaching people how to become homeowners while investing sweat equity and learning financial literacy. 

The organization's goal is to create generational wealth through homeownership.

“It sets the standard that homeownership is possible,” said Moody.  "It sets the standard that economic stability is a critical need."

Moody said Habitat works with the city of Hartford and the Hartford Landbank to identify neighborhoods where they can fix up blighted properties.
