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.
The Housing Partnership and Morris Habitat are offering a free hands-on workshop in Dover from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on July 30. Two Habitat Faithful volunteers will teach you to spackle and paint in the Home$mart Walls class. Registration and driving directions
Join in our 5K Run/Walk in Morris Plains at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 21, to benefit Morris Habitat. Following the 5K, there will be a Kids’ Fun Run for children ages 2-14. Walkers are welcome too! Pre-register by Saturday, August 9, for a lower fee. Details »
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 project in Madison is going strong. New projects will start in July in Morristown (Hazel Street and Willow Street) and Perth Amboy. Please check our online volunteer calendar in the left column for site openings.
The affordable housing supply cannot keep pace with the escalating need. Your financial gift will help twenty hard-working families as they partner with Morris Habitat to build and repair their own homes in 2014. Read more »
You may arrange for home pickup of your items on four scheduled days in each of four areas during 2014.

Volunteer truck drivers will gratefully accept your new or very gently-used home furnishings, appliances and building supplies.
