Get into the Giving Season a Little Early This Year by Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity

WASHINGTON, NJ (Warren County) – With the fall season right around the corner, Habitat for Humanity of Warren County is looking for volunteers to help build new homes for low income, working families. 

Right now, Habitat is in need of construction workers, as well as lunch donations. The amount of experience that you may or may not have does not matter, as long as you are willing to give a helping hand.

 Executive Director of the Warren County Habitat, Ben Eskow, says that the builds usually take place on Thursdays and Saturdays of each week.

“We actually feed our volunteers on site, it’s a great way to minister to those folks that are giving so much of their time, labor, and efforts in our home building programs,” says Eskow.

Not only is Habitat in need of construction workers and lunch donations, but they are also looking to build houses for three new partner families. 

“To qualify you do need to have a housing need, we also take a look at gross income to see where that falls with based on the family size,” says Eskow.

The new houses will be built on Beidleman Road in Franklin Township. There will be three to four bedrooms that are affordably priced, says Eskow. Partners are required to have the ability to make payments on a mortgage as well. 

Applications to become a possible partner are due by 3 PM on October 1st.
