Our Work

Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County will reach a major milestone this year–our 25th Year Anniversary! We thank the 52 Habitat Homeowners who allowed to do the work we love to do. We thank the many, many volunteers, community leaders and all who have joined hands to help first time home buyers achieve the American Dream. We’re looking forward to the next 25 years!

Schenectady Habitat has a long-standing reputation of working to eradicate poverty housing and to help provide low-income, working-class families with safe, decent and affordable homes in our community. Since 1993, Schenectady Habitat has been dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their housing conditions. Habitat enables non-home owning families the opportunity to own a simple, decent home for about the same amount as they would pay for an apartment. To date, Schenectady Habitat has helped 52 families achieve home ownership. By the end of 2018, our volunteers will complete five more homes—both new construction and rehabs—for deserving families.

Current Projects

  • 1055 Davis Terrace (New Construction)
  • 2026 Oaklawn Avenue (New Construction)
  • 78 Oakdale Avenue (Rehab through LandBank partnership)
