Mission Statement

Chemung County Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to mobilize volunteers and partners to help local, low-income families break the cycle of poverty through affordable homeownership. To date, our affiliate has rehabilitated and newly constructed 22 homes in Chemung County and served hundreds of individuals. We are dedicated to restoring a sense of community with the common goal of strong neighborhoods and dignity through homeownership.


We are part of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI)--a nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Chemung County Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
