Building Hope In Ulster County
Ulster County Habitat for Humanity operates in established neighborhoods either by rehabilitating houses or building new homes. Families are chosen based upon demonstrated need and a steady source of income to repay the affordable mortgage. Families invest 300 hours of their own “sweat-equity” labor into the houses.
Habitat partner families are good neighbors and exhibit pride in ownership. Each new Habitat house contributes to the tax base of Ulster County. A Habitat mortgage includes only the cost of materials so that families are able to pay taxes and contribute to the long-term stability of the community.
Habitat seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make shelter a matter of conscience and action. We have completed 12 Family Homes in Ulster County. Please visit Own A Home for details on requirements to qualify for home ownership.
