    Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newark, serving Essex, Hudson, and Union Counties, was established in 1986 as an ecumenical faith-based ministry dedicated to building simple, decent homes for low and moderate-income families. We build homes with hardworking Partner Families who supply at least 200 hours of sweat equity.

    Our mission is to build decent, affordable homes for low-to-moderate income families in Essex, Hudson and Union Counties. Additionally, through our Critical Repair program we provide the necessary repairs to keep veterans and seniors at risk of homelessness in the place they call home.

    Our vision is to be a well-established, caring community organization with adequate financial resources, effective structure, and staffing. With help from our volunteers and generous contributions from our funders, we strive to make a positive difference in creating a visible community of homeowners to live in safe, affordable homes throughout Essex, Hudson and Union Counties.
