Who We Are
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. SCHFH seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness in the county and around the world. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
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 501(c)3 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.
We are usually there sometime on Saturday. Please make sure you check. Call before you leave home to see if we are there.
Possible Homes Coming
SCHFH hopes to begin a new house in April or May 2022. We will post a notice when the application process for a new client is open.
