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:

AT LAST! The local affiliate, working with our committee has established a September start for our home. We still have to work out the details as to the actual start date in September, the location, and, hopefully, the potential homeowner. Our coalition has 79% of the funds already raised. Watch for bulletin inserts for your opportunity to make a donation that would sponsor a square foot/feet, fund a box of nails, or whatever you could donate.

If you haven’t volunteered to work on the homes in the past, give it some consideration. The local affiliate has set up a very helpful online sign up on their website, rochesterhabitat.org. The signup for our home won’t be ready until we get closer to the start date, but you could volunteer on any home if you’d like. Habitat does a great job of assigning work, and training where necessary. It’s a great experience as you work with other representatives which could even include current and potential homeowners.

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.
