Habitat for Humanity is an International Housing Ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing. Volunteers work in partnership with families in need of this mission.


Herkimer County Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of the larger international organization. Habitat is a not-for-profit organization, registered with the State of New York.


Like all Habitat for Humanity local affiliates, the Herkimer County Habitat for Humanity relies heavily on local support in the form of volunteers and donations.  Are you interested in finding out how you can help Habitat for Humanity bring about their vision of a world where everyone has a simple, decent place to live?
