Habitat for Humanity
Coordinator: Bill Mason

Flower City Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard and poverty housing in Rochester, NY.

For more information, please visit their site: http://www.rochesterhabitat.org/

 

These are the homes we have sponsored to date, by year indicated. Each required our coalition to raise $65,000 and help provide volunteers to build the home. Each home was dedicated to the homeowner when it was complete. Each homeowner had to help build the home and attend classes that would help with budgeting, routine home maintenance, and other similar training sessions.  The  homeowner assumed a 20 year mortgage for the value of the home with monthly payments that they could meet, based on their family size, monthly income, etc. Currently, the existing mortgages are non-interest bearing. If you think you’d like to get involved in any way, please contact me at wmason@rochester.rr.com or 453-9038. I can always use someone to represent our church (the founding church) at meetings I’m not able to attend. Bill Mason


Current News!

Our annual sale of Kelly’s pies is complete with pies being distributed on Tuesday, Nov. 21st. Thank you for your support – this is a major fundraiser for our coalition by combining sales from all of our churches along with Holy Cross R.C. which participates in this every year.

At our upcoming November meeting we will decide whether or not to commit to an April build schedule of a home with Flower City Habitat for Humanity. They continue to build homes in what is referred to as the Josana District – homes on streets such as Joseph, Otis, Scio, Ames, etc. That area continues to be their focus, working with the City.

Once we make that commitment, we will be looking for donations in support of the funds   necessary to sponsor a home ($65,000) which will include sponsoring a square foot ($65), box of nails ($10), etc – you get the picture. We are a little over 50% there now. Once the build is actually scheduled, we’ll be asking for volunteers to work on the home. That’s always a rewarding experience. So watch for more in upcoming newsletters.

If you think you’d like to get involved in any way, please contact me at 453-9038, or at  wmason@rochester.rr.com . I can always use someone to represent our church (the founding church) at meetings I’m not able to attend.
