Finishing the Moved House

The community moved the house. Now we need help getting it ready for a Habitat Family.

The video above told you all about our plans for the Moving Project.  

Well,...WE DID IT!  

In the Fall of 2016, Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County, with the help of generous supporters and donors, MOVED an entire house from the rolling hills of Staatsburgh to the City of Poughkeepsie. It was an amazing feat of coordination.


Now that the house is securely settled into its new home at 45 Smith Street, Habitat Dutchess must gather its volunteers and supporters to finish the project.  

The house needs a new roof, siding and some interior work. And as soon as the work is completed, yet one more Habitat family will be able purchase their new home with an affordable mortgage. They will become the fourth Habitat homeowner in that neighbor.  

It's no secret that the beautiful city of Poughkeepsie has more than its fair share of families living in poverty.  Thanks to our supporters (you?), Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County is changing this fact, one family at a time. By helping folks purchase a safe, decent, affordable home, it could very well lift them out of poverty. And we know that children that live in a stable home are healthier and do better in school. Habitat Dutchess helps future residents become responsible, conscientious citizens that contribute to their community.

Your donation today will bring us just that much closer to realizing our vision of a Dutchess County where everyone has a decent place to live.  We all thrive when everyone thrives.

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 family-owned homes. 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.
