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.
From March 1-9, sixteen volunteers and supporters are on our second Global Village trip to build a home with our sister affiliate in La Ceiba, Honduras. The team will experience another culture while making a difference in the lives of a local family in need. Read about our first Global Village trip in 2011 »
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.
Our long-term construction projects in Dover and Madison are going strong. Please check our online volunteer calendar in the left column for site openings. This winter we will have indoor builds with warming stations, hot chocolate and lots of fun to warm your day!
You may arrange for home pickup of your items on four scheduled days in each of four areas during 2014. The ReStore truck will visit the Bernardsville/BaskingRidge area on Tuesdays, Summit on Wednesdays and Chatham or the Boonton/Montville/Mountain Lakes area on Fridays. 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 exact dates and more 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 »
