Founded in 1984 as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat NYC has served more than 600 families in the five boroughs through home construction and preservation, beginning with our very first build on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, during the first-ever Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Since then, Habitat NYC has brought together thousands of New Yorkers each year who become part of the solution to New York’s affordable housing need.
Build Affordable Homes
With so many families being priced out of an increasingly expensive rental market, we believe that hard-working New Yorkers deserve a decent place to call home. That’s why developing both single-family homes and multi-family buildings is at the very heart of our mission.
Housing Preservation program
Many homes in New York City have fallen into disrepair. Part of our mission is working to ensure the residents of these homes can remain and thrive in New York City for generations to come. Our Housing Preservation program provides long-term, multi-generational housing affordability for low- to moderate-income residents.
Advocacy for NYC
Habitat NYC plays a critical role in housing policy reform to benefit New Yorkers across the five boroughs. Working with our supportive advocates and partners at the local, state and federal level, we advocate for housing policies that drive Habitat NYC’s mission of building and preserving our hard-working communities. Use your voice to join in our efforts to build and preserve a more equitable City.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
