Habitat for Humanity - New York City NY

Founded in 1984 as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat for Humanity - New York City builds in the five boroughs of New York City. We complete about 25 houses a year. We build the homes with the sweat equity of our family partner homeowners who work side-by-side with volunteers. In addition to building homes, Habitat-NYC is a leading advocate for affordable housing. Our goal is to ensure that every New Yorker has a decent, affordable home, by creating a social movement to end the housing crisis plaguing New York City and by calling on elected officials to make affordable housing a priority.
