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 office and construction sites will be closed on Friday, May 24, and Monday-Tuesday, May 27-28, for Memorial Day and for recuperation after our successful blitz build in Budd Lake on May 18-19. The ReStore will be closed Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26.
Wood from the iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will be milled into two-by-four lumber this spring and donated by Tishman Speyer to be used in the construction of Morris Habitat homes. Read more »

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.
