Homeownership - A Hand Up, Not a Hand-Out
Since 1984, Flower City Habitat for Humanity has been making home ownership a dream come true for low-income families. For the majority of our homeowners, our program provides the only opportunity for them to realize the American Dream, and most represent the first members of their families to ever own their own home. Pride in home ownership extends to pride in one's neighborhood. So not only do we improve lives by adding stability and better housing conditions, but we work to transform inner city Rochester neighborhoods that have long been plagued by decay, poverty and crime.
Flower City Habitat for Humanity is a self-help self-help program involving financial literacy, homebuilding skills, and for some, eventual homeownership.
Working with volunteers, house sponsors representing the corporate, faith-based and general community along with partner families, Flower City Habitat for Humanity is building houses and hope, one family, one street, and one neighborhood at a time.
