About the Organization

Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County Inc.

At Habitat for Humanity Dutchess, we Build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy affordable place to call home. We build because we know that children are 25% more likely to graduate from High School and 18% more likely to attend College if they live a home owned by their parents. We know that children are healthier in homes their family owns. We know that a decent home gives families the strength, stability and independence that they need to create a better life for themselves and their children. We build with families not for families.
