Habitat for Humanity is a global housing organization that works in more than 70 countries and nearly 1,400 communities throughout the United States. Families and individuals partner with us to help build a place they can call home. Habitat builds new homes for first-time homebuyers. Our professional construction staff manages our build sites and oversees our paid subcontractors and volunteers. We balance the use of professional and volunteer labor to achieve our goal of serving as many families and individuals as we can, as efficiently as we can.
Qualified homebuyers have the opportunity to purchase a home that is appropriate for the size and composition of your household based on our current projects. Habitat does not build custom homes. To keep the homes affordable, Habitat cannot accept custom design requests, but homebuyers often have the opportunity to select home finishings such as flooring and cabinets.
We prioritize our construction efforts within focus neighborhoods, which helps stabilize entire communities through responsible homeownership. Habitat is committed to inclusive community development. We believe that responsible homeownership plays a vital role in protecting neighborhoods from displacement, increasing resident autonomy and control, and encourages responsible urban growth. Within our service area, we have identified several focus neighborhoods where we currently prioritize our efforts.
This chapter of Habitat for Humanity is a smaller, volunteer driven organization that maintains and deals with the ministry’s work in Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga counties.
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve a decent place to live.
