Habitat for Humanity New South Wales, with the assistance of our generous sponsors and volunteers, helps low-income families achieve the dream of building and owning their very own safe, secure home.
What we do in New South Wales
Our corporate and individual volunteering program, Brush with Kindness, works in partnership with other non-government organisations to assist disadvantaged and low-income members of the community.
Brush with Kindness aims to revitalise the appearance of communities, encourage connections within the community and increase social inclusion, by mobilising teams of volunteers. Volunteer activities range from landscaping to minor repairs and small building projects.
Home building program
We run a small home building program working with families experiencing “housing affordability stress.”
Families partner with us in the construction of their home and receive an interest-free, 20-30 year loan based on 100 percent of the market value of the completed home.
Partner families contribute 500 hours of their own time in the planning and construction phases – this is called ‘sweat equity’ and is recognised in the 5 percent discount on market value that we return to them.
Through our model, we utilise the partner family loan repayments to build more homes for in-need families.
Together, your church and Habitat for Humanity New South Wales can serve the needs of families facing inadequate affordable housing options in Australia. Our belief is that by working together, we can renew urban communities physically, socially and spiritually. Habitat for Humanity New South Wales actively seeks partnerships with local churches in order to assist them in achieving their goals to help disadvantaged families in their communities access housing solutions.
