About this organization






Habitat for Humanity of Berks County is a non-profit 501(c)(3) ecumenical Christian charitable organization which exists to create affordable home ownership opportunities with and for moderate-income families. Families who purchase Habitat for Humanity homes must first contribute 300 hours labor on a Habitat home, a contribution we call “sweat-equity”. Homes are sold to the families at no profit, and financed with low-interest mortgages. We rely on volunteers and families contributing sweat-equity for the “un-skilled” labor needed to build the homes. Working in this way, we believe we provide families a “hand-up” rather than a “hand-out" while also providing a way for good people to assist hard-working families in our community.
