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.
Homeownership changes lives and is the foundation of strong, vibrant communities. Your financial gift will help eighty hard-working families as they partner with Morris Habitat to build their own homes from 2015 through 2019. Read more »
