Morris County is one of New Jersey’s most affluent counties and yet, there are thousands of families living in inadequate or substandard housing because they can’t afford the area’s high prices. As a nonprofit, equal opportunity, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, we are dedicated to building decent, affordable housing with low-income families. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
Start a new family tradition with The Carpenter’s Gift by David Rubel, a book about the relationship between the Rockefeller Center® Christmas Tree and Habitat for Humanity. Order the book online for $12 and pick it up at the ReStore at your convenience. Mr. Rubel will personally autograph copies from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 5. Details »
The affordable housing supply cannot keep pace with the escalating need. Your financial gift will help ten hard-working families as they partner with Morris Habitat to build their own homes in 2014. Read more »
With the growth of our new Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, we have an increased need for volunteers for short-term construction projects. Upcoming dates are listed at the top of the Volunteer Now section. Please sign up whenever you can help.
You may arrange for home pickup of your items on a bi-monthly scheduled day in four areas through December. The ReStore truck will visit Summit or the Bernardsville/BaskingRidge area on a Wednesday and Chatham or the Boonton/Montville/Mountain Lakes area on a Friday. Volunteer truck drivers will gratefully accept your new or very gently-used home furnishings, appliances and building supplies. When considering what to donate, please review our guidelines for information about age and condition restrictions. The guidelines list the many types of merchandise we are searching for as well as items that we are not able to accept. Check “Upcoming Events” on this page for more details.
