We believe that everyone deserves a decent place to live.

Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity helps low-income individuals and families in Rochester, Wayne and Ontario County build and purchase an affordable home.


Program Guidelines

Are you in need of better housing?

Potential homebuyers might be dealing with poorly made, unhealthy or inadequate housing; unaffordable rent; homes inaccessible for their disabilities or damaged by natural disasters; or have other shelter needs.

Are you able to pay an affordable mortgage?

Habitat offers homebuyers an affordable mortgage. Their mortgage payments cycle back into the community to help build more affordable homes.

Are you willing to partner with Habitat?

Habitat homebuyers put in hundreds of hours of "sweat equity" helping build their own home and the homes of others in the program. This might also include classes in personal finances, home maintenance and other homeownership topics.
