Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity

Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity (RVHFH) is dedicated to building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter locally in Somerset and Hunterdon Counties. RVHFH addresses the need for affordable homes in the following ways:

  • Partnering with the community to obtain affordable property, building materials and services.
  • Mobilizing the community to volunteer in all aspects of the program, including the fair and open family selection process, providing financial guidance and resources, and building homes in partnership with homeowners.
  • Extending an affordable, no-down payment mortgage and subsidizing the cost of the home. This reduces monthly housing costs by 30%, allowing families to build financial self-sufficiency.

In 26 years, RVHFH has built 50 homes. RVHFH’s program builds strong families. Strong families build strong communities.
