About Syracuse Habitat
Syracuse Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit ecumenical agency whose mission is to eliminate substandard housing in the world.
The Syracuse Habitat Seeks to put God’s love into action, bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
In Syracuse, over 65 homes have been completed and ready for occupancy. Each Habitat family is expected to contribute a minimum number of sweat-hours to the construction of their home. A small down payment is also required. Twenty-year, interest-free, mortgages are held by Syracuse Habitat.
“Habitat for Humanity’s creed is to work in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities with people in need by building and renovating decent houses in decent communities in which people can live and grow into all that God intended. Habitat creates partnerships within the community by crossing racial, cultural, political and economic barriers and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion , sex, family status or disability.
