Simple, Decent, Affordable Housing for Our Community
What does it take to build a Habitat home? Just as it takes every nail, every board and every gallon of paint to finish a Habitat for Humanity home, it also takes every hour of hard work by future homeowners and volunteers, every ounce of support from generous donors and every bit of building expertise to guide the construction process. In every Habitat home, you find the work and dedication of so many people, all working with a common goal: helping another family build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Habitat for Humanity of Rockland is an independently operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Our mission is to work in partnership with thousands of Rockland County volunteers and qualified low income families of all races, religions, and creeds to build and renovate homes and provide financial education so that there is decent, safe, affordable housing where families can live and grow in a stable environment.
Over the past 22 years, Habitat of Rockland has worked to help families achieve their dreams of homeownership through our affordable homeownership program. We believe in providing a “hand up” not a hand out and we could not do this work without our dedicated base of givers, like you. Thousands of Rockland County families stand with us each year through their donations to help us build affordable homes. We are so grateful for this support and believe that together, one family at a time, we can build a Rockland County where everyone has a decent and safe place to live.
