Does Habitat only focus on building new houses?

No, Habitat works in a myriad of ways in the community. Even more than new construction, Northern Ocean Habitat actively repairs homes for low-income, qualifying homeowners.  Our many programs include “Aging in Place”, Critical Home Repairs, Weatherization, Veteran Repairs, and Neighborhood Revitalization, and Cars for Homes.  We partner with group homes for disabled adults, we participate in global village trips (usually to Guatemala, our global partner), and we hold special events such as Women Build Week.  We have many partners including the American Red Cross where we support their Home Fire Campaign.  Our ReStore provides low-cost household items to the public, keeps tons of items out of local landfills, and of course supports our mission.

Our Disaster Response program also works with local communities to address a variety of housing needs after natural disasters.  In particular, Northern Ocean Habitat rehabilitated 60 local homes impacted by Superstorm Sandy!
