Habitat for Humanity

Salem County, New Jersey

Habitat for Humanity of Salem County, NJ  builds homes throughout Salem County.  Home prices are kept affordable due to our wonderful donors and volunteers working alongside our partner families.  Homeowners complete 225 hours of Sweat Equity on the build site or at the Habitat Restore.  We believe that everyone should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Our partner families purchase their home through a low interest mortgage administered by the USDA.
