The dream of homeownership
is achievable

Own a Habitat Home

A hand up, not a hand out…

In partnership with the community and low- and moderate-income families who need a decent place to live, Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity (RVHFH) builds homes in Hunterdon and Somerset Counties. Each RVHFH partner homeowner attends financial literacy training and invests 250-500 hours towards the building of their home. Upon completion, they purchase the home with a Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity zero-percent interest mortgage. The affordable mortgage reduces monthly housing expenses by $300-$700, allowing families to save money, invest in education, and increase their earnings potential.
