Welcome to Orleans Habitat for Humanity, Inc.
working in Orleans County, NY

We are a 100% volunteer, official affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International established in the summer of 1992 with stated mission of building one house per year to help alleviate inadequate housing in Orleans County, one of the poorest counties in New York State.

Orleans Habitat for Humanity Medina New YorkSince that time we have successfuly completed eleven homes for eleven families, and we're currently building our 12th home.

Habitat "homeowner partners" work side-by-side with local volunteers to complete 300 hours of "sweat-equity" before moving into their new homes. After moving in, the homeowners begin payments on his/her mortgage and taxes with a no-interest loan from Orleans Habitat for Humanity, Inc. The mortgage money is then used to build more Habitat homes.

We also support Habitat for Humanity International in their efforts to alleviate sub-standard housing in other countries. As of 2008 our annual tithe to HFHI has built 9 homes in other countries.
