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 coalition has 68% of the funds already raised, with the start of our build planned for early July if that works with Flower City Habitat. Next on our agenda is our annual Sticky Lips BBQ sale, scheduled for May 24th, 3:00-6:00pm at Hope Church on Vintage Lane – I’ll be putting publicity in the Sunday bulletins as we get a little closer. If you would be willing to volunteer to help work that event with us, please let me know by phone or email. We typically need volunteers to direct traffic, take and run orders and then fill the orders. You can volunteer for as many or few hours as you like. Tickets will be available ahead of the event, but the event is also open to the public without tickets. This and our pie sale are our most significant fund raisers.  

If you haven’t volunteered to work on the homes in the past, give it some consideration. Habitat does a great job of assigning work, and training where necessary. It’s a great experience as you work with other representative 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.
