BENEFITING: Habitat for Humanity of Southern Ocean County
Help us give the gift of a new home for Christmas! We are kicking off the construction of our next home in the Ocean Acres section of Stafford Township this June. Our goal is to finish construction and sell the home to our partner family in time to celebrate Christmas under their own roof.
We are constructing this home for a family of five that currently pays more than 45% of their monthly income in rent. In addition to the cost burden, the families’ apartment is energy inefficient creating additional utility costs and one bedrooms is in a converted dining room. Their new home will reduce their housing costs by more than 30% when factoring in utilities. Perhaps most importantly, they will also gain the peace of mind and security that comes with homeownership.
