We are grateful to have celebrated our 35th Flower City Habitat for Humanity Anniversary with our wonderful community supporters, donors, volunteers, staff, and sponsors! Together we raised over $125,000 to continue building strength, stability, and self-reliance in Rochester!
Betts Family & Sutton Family Dedications!
What a beautiful day to celebrate TWO Habitat Home Dedications!
Today we had the honor of celebrating the ceremonial and spiritual transition of two construction sites into two new Habitat Homes that were full of excitement, love, and plans for the future.
There's a few things left to finish up, but in just a few short weeks The Betts Family and The Sutton Family will be closing on their affordable mortgages, moving in, and building the next chapter of their lives in a quality, affordable, and stable home.
These two homes were made possible by the hard work of our partner families, Habitat staff and volunteers, and the faith-filled support of the Penfield Area Coalition of Churches, Thrivent Financial, and the Harvest Home Coalition.
All three of these faith-based organizations (along with many more) are already gearing up to partner with us again - and if you are interested in putting your faith into action with us, we invite you to learn more at: www.rochesterhabitat.org/faith

"The help I had with Abi and my coach getting me through this year, when I had my ups and downs... You guys brought me through this year and made me stronger, to say that I can do this. I just want to thank everyone, thank you guys so much. And today is my grandbaby's birthday!"
To Regina and her family, we want to say thank you for partnering with us to help make your dream of homeownership come true - your strength and hard work make us all stronger too!
We also want to thank all of the volunteer and donors from our Women Build program who brought together the funding and volunteers to make this possible - the 14th Women Build house in Rochester!
