Our Work

Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County will reach a major milestone in 2023 –our 30th Anniversary! We thank the 56 Habitat Homeowners who have allowed us 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 30 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 56 families achieve home ownership.
