Who Are We?
Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity (CCHFH) was founded in 1989 when a few local residents saw a need to create more affordable home ownership opportunities for residents of Cumberland County. Now there are more than 20 affiliates in New Jersey, divided primarily according to county lines. Each affiliate has their own board of directors and operates a little differently, based on the needs and resources in their specific community. We are proud to be recognized as a productive, progressive affiliate.
Since 1989, CCHFH affiliate has partnered with 30 local families, helping them transition from sub-standard housing living conditions to home ownership.
Habitat for Humanity International's goal is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness worldwide and to stir the hearts and minds of others to take action on this issue.
Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
