Habitat for Humanity Newark

Habitat for Humanity Newark (HFHN) is an ecumenical Christian ministry dedicated to building simple, decent homes for low income families in Essex County, New Jersey. We build homes with hardworking partner families who supply more than 400 hours of sweat equity. HFHN finances the home purchase with no interest mortgages. We are proud that over 80 families have benefited from homes built with generous donations and by thousands of volunteers.
