Namskaket Homes, Orleans, MA

The Namskaket Home initiative was awarded a $133,932 Affordable Housing Program grant through member Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank. Sponsored by Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, Namskaket Homes is a new five-home subdivision built on a five-acre parcel in Orleans.

“As a person — not just as a banker — I was thrilled by the whole Habitat experience, by the sweat equity piece and the fact that these houses are 100 percent affordable,” says Fletcher Boyle, senior vice president at Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank. “This development puts together young families, gives them pride of ownership, and teaches them about the issues involved in owning a home — I’m a big fan of the Habitat model.”
