Our Mission

Habitat for Humanity International (“HFHI”) is dedicated to the elimination of poverty and substandard housing worldwide. To that end, HFHI has built and renovated over 200,000 houses since 1976. Habitat for Humanity of Hudson County, Inc. (“HFHHC”), an affiliate of HFHI, promotes homeownership for low-income individuals and families through volunteer labor, sweat equity from partner homeowners, donated materials, and public and private funding. Our partners are Hudson County residents who qualify based on three criteria: need for adequate housing, willingness to partner with HFHHC, and the ability to repay a no-interest mortgage. This partnership approach offers a “hand-up” to those who otherwise would not be able to afford to own a home, while improving the economic vitality and quality of life in lower income communities.

Who We Serve

Habitat for Humanity of Hudson County serves individuals and families in Bayonne, East Newark, Guttenberg, Harrison, Hoboken, Jersey City, Kearny, North Bergen, Secaucus, Union City, Weehawken, West New York, and all communities in Hudson County. Established in 2004 by our Founder, Margaret Cook-Levy.

How We Do It

Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to qualified partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, 0% interest loans. The homeowner’s monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving fund for Habitat Hudson County that is used to build more homes in the neighborhood.
