Mission Statement

Together with volunteers, organizations, and partner families, Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties builds, revitalizes, and energizes homes, neighborhoods, and communities.

Description

Habitat homes are built by volunteers, both skilled and novice, who wish to help families in need of affordable, decent housing. More than 450 volunteers participated in the most recent build in Cortland. We are currently building our 13th home in our community! Additionally, for every house TCHFH builds here, in the United States, we are committed to providing significant financial support of house-building efforts in other countries by participating in the tithe program. Right now, we are supporting our 10th international house. In 2007, the TCHFH Board of Directors adopted a "build green" policy. This affiliate is committed to building and rehabbing as energy-efficient and environmentally "green" as possible, while still ensuring that the homes are affordable. Our first "green" build was completed at 165 Tompkins Street in Cortland. Support Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties by volunteering time and skills either on the construction site or on a committee. Be a part of a rewarding experience. Donations of land, vehicles, tools, and building materials are always welcome. With the community's support Habitat will continue to build affordable homes for families in need.
