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

What's New?

Our committee took a couple of months off this summer because of conflicts that members had. We met again on Sep 5th and kick-started the plans for the coming months. At the October meeting we hope to commit to a build next summer if it fits in the build schedule of our local Habitat organization. I don’t anticipate any issues there.

Meanwhile, we continue our fundraising efforts with the next event being our Thanksgiving pie sale. The details will be worked out with Habitat and Kelly’s at a meeting coming up soon. I’ll share that info once it’s available, but it should be about the same time with the same selection and similar prices
