Community Caring – Habitat for Humanity

Chenango County Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian housing ministry affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International. The primary target population for the project is to help families of all ages and of all racial/ethnic compositions currently living in substandard housing throughout Chenango County, who need a “hand up rather than a hand out”. Through volunteer labor, management expertise, and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates homes with the help of the homeowners. Houses are sold at no profit to partner families, and no-interest mortgages are issued over a fixed period. Small monthly mortgage payments, including taxes and insurance, are repaid over an average of 20/30 years and deposited into a revolving “Fund for Humanity”, which supports the construction of more houses and rehab projects. CCHH relies heavily on volunteers of all skill levels, not just building skills.

CCHH is classified as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization of the Internal Revenue Code. Learn more about CCHH on Facebook and Website: Please feel free to contact Sandra Colton at 607-334-7492 or Kathy Knudsen at 607-639-1176 for information.

Watch for our April 14, 2018 fundraiser to be held at the Norwich YMCA, which will consist of soup, baked goods, and raffles provided by various Chenango county restaurants/businesses and individual volunteers.
