Madison County NY Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

Founded in 1984
Affiliated in 1984, Cazenovia Area Habitat for Humanity, Inc. is the 50th affiliate of the internationally known organization. We are currently building our 8th home in the Madison County Area in the town of Eaton, just north of Bradley Brook Reservoir on Huntington Camp Road. Donations in Kind have helped the organization stretch it's budget. Saturday September 10th will be the day the foundation gets poured and construction goes full bore. The family has been very active in the construction process thus far and is a pleasure to work with. Completion is anticipated this year if donations do not slow down.
Workers meet on Saturday mornings at 8AM and during the week if needed. George Belton, our Construction Supervisor and Building Committee Chairman is the best contact to verify the activity before coming to the site. His phone number is 315-655-5798.
If you or someone you know is in need of decent, affordable housing, please call our office for more information about the process of applying for Habitat home ownership. That number is toll free- 1-866-751-6340.
