What has been the biggest hardship for your organization?
Hurricane Sandy was very difficult to overcome, Many people and families had severely damaged houses. House applications were actually decreased that year due to lack of supplies as well.
What kind of houses do you build?
Very simple, modern houses. The homes are designed so that they can be simply built, but provide the space and general necessities a family would need.
After the house is built, does the family own or rent the house?
The family does own the house, eventually. A "loan" of sorts is set up, and each able family member must put in a certain amount of hours as volunteer work before they officially own the home. They do make payments as well until their hours are completed. Once finished, the house is completely theirs.
What can we do to get more involved in your organization?
Volunteers are always welcome but the are many other ways to get involved. Throughout the year we have many fund-raising events, like the Polar Plunge on April 11th, that the community can get involved with. We also have the Re-Store locations that sell used materials to help raise money for the organization.
There are many ways to volunteer, Construction or non-construction.
Volunteers for construction are needed on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays.
No knowledge is needed, just a willingness to learn.
