Habitat for Humanity is known throughout the world for its unique building model. Volunteers work alongside the families who will own the completed homes. Habitat NYC has adapted its model for New York City's complex urban building environment.
With the help of City of New York's Department of Housing Preservation and Development and other governmental agencies, Habitat NYC acquires land and buildings for a nominal fee. Professional architects design our buildings and professional contractors build the buildings along with thousands of volunteers as well as family partners.
Habitat NYC has ongoing and upcoming projects in Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island and completed construction projects in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
Habitat for Humanity New York City transforms lives by building quality homes with families in need and by uniting all New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing.
