How to Help
Current Project
Habitat For Humanity Seneca County

Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County, NY, is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization.

Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build homes or renovate existing homes to create decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged. Mortgage payments received by the affiliate are used to build more homes.

Everyone can be part of the Habitat mission to eliminate substandard housing, even if you don't know how to build. In addition to construction work, volunteers are needed for a wide variety of activities including supporting construction, working with families, raising money and carrying out other activities of the affiliate.


This is a service provided by
