Who We Are

Our Mission:
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Whom We Serve

Habitat homebuyers are of low to moderate income, with a stable employment record and decent credit history. Participants are chosen based on their need, ability to pay, and willingness to fulfill the “sweat equity” component: helping to build their future home or those of their Habitat neighbors.

How We Work

We are a non-profit housing developer that works with both government agencies and philanthropic donors to offer hard-working New Yorkers “a hand up, not a hand out” helping families to build equity, financial stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership and financial education.

Why it Matters

It’s clear there is a housing crisis eroding our area’s culturally rich communities. Habitat for Humanity NSWWC homes give families a path towards financial stability and the choice to remain within their communities.

“1 in 5 families in our community spend more the 50% of their income on housing. Your friends and neighbors are forced to make impossible choices. Safe homes. Nutritious food on the table. Health care. Access to good schools. Reliable transportation. Every day my team works to tackle this challenge”
