We Envision A World Where Everyone Has a Decent Place to Live.
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.
At West Orange Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Through shelter, we empower. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we — we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
how we make decent housing affordable
We offer a hand up for those in need by making affordable housing available. We design and construct simple homes using volunteer labor whenever possible. Homeowners work hard to put in over 300 hours of sweat equity on their home as well as their neighbors homes. Coupled with an interest-free mortgage, the hard work of volunteers makes homeownership an option for those who otherwise would be living in sub-standard conditions.
