We build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Paterson Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build a place to call home.
We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.

Your donation will help families in need of a decent place to build long-term
financial security.

With Paterson Habitat, you have the opportunity to build in your community and also in communities around the world. 

Families who partner with us build their own homes alongside volunteers, pay an affordable mortgage.
