Habitat for Humanity Makes Manhattan More Like Home

Larry Liotta of Habitat for Humanity came tonight to talk about all they do here. Habitat enjoys the help of volunteers and materials donors. They are now building their 28th home. They currently build one a year, and they have plans to build three a year. They cooperate with MATC and they’d like to work more with local churches. Future owners invest at least 300 hours of labor. They also run a repair program which provides home repairs for home owners who might not afford to do critical repairs otherwise. They’ve put in many ramps for handicapped citizens, and painted homes in danger of citation for peeling paint. Restore is Habitat’s store for reselling donated household goods. They will accept furniture, appliances, building materials, paint, etc., to make money for their operation. Anyone can shop there and proceeds go to help Habitats mission.
