Columbia County Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1993 to make safe, decent affordable home ownership available to working families.
Partnering with families, community volunteers and area businesses and organizations, Habitat helps transform lives. Together, we build affordable and sustainable houses that become the foundation of our homeowners’ paths to strong, stable and independent lives and futures for themselves and their children.
To generate revenue for building projects as well as encourage re-use and recycling, Habitat also operates ReStore, located adjacent to our office on Route 66, just north of 9H in Hudson, NY.

Columbia County Habitat for Humanity Programs
OWN A HOME
Everyone deserves a decent place to live, and everyone can do something today to make that possible for another family. Qualified families work alongside our volunteers to build their own safe, sustainable and affordable homes.
We build safe, modest homes with qualified working families and community volunteers. Our partner families must contribute 300 hours of sweat equity to Habitat –– working on their prospective homes’ construction, at ReStore and/or in the Habitat office.
ReStore is part home improvement store and part donation center selling new and gently used furniture, appliances, home goods, building materials and more.
AGING IN PLACE
Through Aging In Place, Columbia County Habitat for Humanity provides products and services that foster safe and livable homes and communities, helping people of all ages achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
Work focuses on critical exterior repairs and accessibility needs.
Types of work that may be provided include exterior repairs and enhanced access, including installing railings and accessibility ramps, fixing broken windows, and other work that fits within the guidelines of the AIP program.
