Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity of Hudson County promotes home ownership for low-income individuals and families through volunteer labor, sweat equity from partner homeowners, donated materials, and public and private funding. This partnership approach ties communities together to improve the lives of those less fortunate by offering them a "hand-up" to a decent home, improving the economic vitality and quality of life for all residents along the way.

Description

Habitat for Humanity of Hudson County(HFHHC) is focused in two areas that serve low-income members of the community:

1. This affiliate developed "Habitat Helping Hands" (HHH) in response to the devastation Superstorm Sandy caused to Hudson County residents. The HHH program is designed to assist the rebuilding efforts of low-income individuals and families in a way that is both sustainable and scalable, by starting with small projects that follow procedures and resources that will also apply to complex repair and rebuilding work. The intention of HFHHC is to use funding support from the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund to cover Phases I and II of the HHH program. (A complete program description and budget is attached.)


2. New Construction project in Kearny, NJ. HFHHC is teaming up with the Hudson County Division of Community Development on the project, located at 41 Kearny Avenue in Kearny. The County donated the lot, the site of a former County health clinic. HFFHC secured a significant amount of funding for the project from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, to be administered by the Hudson County Division of Community Development. When completed, the first floor of the project will be fully wheelchair accessible, and will be topped by two duplex apartments.
