Habitat Families

When families work side by side with our construction staff and volunteers to build their forever home, they are not only building a better community, but they are also building a better life for themselves and the future of their children.

Habitat homes are purchased by families with limited incomes through affordable mortgages. Families partner with Habitat and participate in the construction of their own homes as they prepare for successful homeownership.

FUTURE HOMEOWNERS

Helen & DeVon 

"My son DeVon and I were overwhelmed with shock and joy to find out that we had been selected to become homeowners. Though life at home and work can be a struggle sometimes, DeVon and I have always been there for each other. I couldn't have been prouder when he agreed to build this home with me and make our dreams a reality."

Tiffany and Stefanie

"Owning a Habitat home will definitely change our lives for the better! We will have safe and affordable housing, a room/space to call our own and a brighter future."

Christopher & Amanda

"Owning our own home means we can start our family, finally have a sense of security and a place to call our own. More importantly, it is the foundation to build a home for the children we plan to have in the near future."

Sahlise

"It will be a wonderful experience for me and my family to be a part of building our home. I am proud and have worked very hard to be able to do this for my family and to be part of helping other Habitat families build their homes too."

Allyson 

"Owning a home as a single Mom of four would give me such a sense of accomplishment. Having the opportunity to provide a beautiful, healthy home for my children would be such a blessing."

Zach & Jessica

"Owning our home would mean the world to us. A place my family can call their own means security and growth.  This home is where we will make many happy memories with our family and friends for years to come."

"Growing up my dad was my sole caretaker, I never had anything permanent like a bedroom or a home and I changed schools often. Partnering with Habitat Long Island and owning a home of my own will be my greatest accomplishment."

"I know what it is to grow up struggling, and I will be so thankful every morning I wake up in the house that Habitat built because I will know that my kids won't have to see that struggle anymore."
