Our Local Habitat

Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County was founded in 1988 by a group of dedicated volunteers who shared a vision of helping local hard-working, low-income families create strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Habitat Wayne County is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide 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 shelter conditions.

Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County is a fully autonomous, non-profit 501(c)(3), tax exempt organization. You can find our Habitat houses in Newark, Sodus, North Rose, Clyde, Macedon and East Williamson, Ontario, Wolcott, Rose, Williamson, Lyons and Marion. We have built or recycled over 30 homes to families in need of decent, affordable shelter.

About Habitat for Humanity International

Habitat for Humanity partners with people in local communities, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. Habitat operates in over 70 countries and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 1,000,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 7 million people worldwide.
We may disagree on all sorts of things... baptism, communion, what night to have prayer meeting, and how the preacher should dress. But thank God we can agree on a nail and the use of the hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love.
