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.
Hopatcong Home Repair
Esther DiGiovanni from Hopatcong takes care of her brother who is disabled and uses a wheelchair. Esther submitted a Home Repair Ministry application for a ramp to be built from the back of her house so that she can safely get her brother down and around to the driveway. Our Construction Crew recently completed this project, click here to see the pictures.
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.
