our impact

what we've accomplished together

Since 1991, Sussex County Habitat for Humanity has worked to address Sussex County's affordable housing needs. 

Thanks to our amazing donors, volunteers, and community partners, six local families entered 2022 as Habitat homeowners – including our 150th home since 1991 – and ten more are progressing through the program. Hundreds of households accessed healthy home repairs, accessibility modifications, energy efficiency upgrades and financial literacy through Sussex County Habitat programs.

We envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Join us by donating time or financial support today!
