Habitat for Humanity - New York City transforms lives and our city by building quality homes for families in need and by uniting all New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing. Habitat is known throughout the world for its unique building model, in which volunteers work alongside the families who will own the completed homes.

Habitat-NYC acquires land and buildings from the City of New York's Department of Housing Preservation and Development and other governmental agencies for a nominal fee. Professionals design and build the exterior, and volunteers and future homeowners help build and complete the interiors.

They also have a "Brush with Kindness" program that assists community centers and low-income families in repairing and renovating their homes and spaces. These projects include painting, landscaping, weatherization and minor repair services.
