What is Habitat?
Nassau Habitat for Humanity (N.H.F.H.) is a local volunteer organization affiliated with Habitat for Humanity® International, a Christian inspired ministry whose mission is to build decent, affordable housing in the US and around the world.
N.H.F.H. is run by a local board of directors who raise funds; select families, building sites and house plans; supervise construction and administer the mortgages. N.H.F.H. began building homes in 1993. In 2016, Nassau Habitat completed its 40th home.
Homes are built for families meeting the requirements outlined here. Donations and volunteer labor finance construction. The homes are sold at cost to qualified families through an interest free mortgage issued by N.H.F.H.
N.H.F.H. does not offer short-term housing, rental housing or immediate occupancy.
Habitat families are selected without regard to religion, race, ethnic background, family status, or disability.
