Who We Are
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity, Inc. was established in 1993 by a small group of people concerned with the need for decent, affordable housing in Sussex County, NJ. We are a non-profit Christian organization and affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Our ministry was founded on the belief that safe and decent shelter from the elements is a basic human need.
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is 100% volunteer and partners with people in need, regardless of race or religion.
We use donated labor and materials from the community, homeowners' sweat equity, and corporate gifts-in-kind to make safe and affordable housing a reality. We don't make a profit on our work and we hold interest free mortgages on our new homes as a way of turning faith into action according to Christ's teachings of love. We improve the communities we work in by gathering and welcoming volunteers, homeowners, and supporters from all backgrounds.
Everyone is welcome. We need your help and support.
Hardwick House Dedication
The Dedication of our recently completed Hardwick whole-house renovation project was held on Sunday, April 26th. The family is expected to close on the house within the next few weeks and be settled into their new home by June. Thanks to all who joined us for this celebration of our dedicated volunteers and the family. Photos follow:
Last Chance Sale! The ReStore will be holding a Final Blowout in Branchville on Saturday May 30th from 9 AM - 2 PM. Please check back for our new ReStore location & opening date.
Sparta Home Repair Ministry
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity volunteers are building a small one story addition for a single mom in Sparta.
The shell is now up and water tight and we've opened the inside wall. The electrician has started the rough wiring and this project is moving well along. We're hoping to shingle the roof & get the vinyl siding on in the next week or two, weather permitting. With any luck we'll be sheet rocking in a couple of weeks and then the homeowner will finish up this project with paint and some simple floor covering.
Want To Get Involved?
Are you looking for a way to get involved & give back to the community?
We need more people on our Fundraising Committee to help raise money & awareness for our projects right here in Sussex County.
We're also looking for a few individual volunteers or a school group who would be available on Saturday mornings to help with picking up furniture & appliance donations for our ReStore. We pick-up on the average of once or twice a month.
If you're interested in helping please call the office and leave a message or you can always send us an e-mail.
