Don't miss the 2014 Recovery Blitz Build throughout the Bayshore - October 29 - November 1
It has been two years since Hurricane Sandy barreled down East Coast, causing immeasurable damage to thousands of homes, especially in our Bayshore communities. So many in our local towns, including Middletown, continue to struggle to rebuild in wake of this disaster. In partnership with T&M Associates, Chase, Thrivent Financial, the American Red Cross, the Jersey Strong Foundation and the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund, among others, Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County will be hosting a Blitz Build at the end of October during the two-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy throughout the Bayshore area.

This October, Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County is kicking off its "The House that Youth Built" campaign. This campaign is a youth based service project aimed at engaging schools and youth organizations to help raise funds needed for the Henn Family of Middletown, a family displaced from Hurricane Sandy since 2012. 

The initiative is part of Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth's continued Sandy Relief efforts and comes one year after President Carter and his wife Rosalynn visited Union Beach for a Blitz Build that helped over 14 families. In the nearly two years since Hurricane Sandy, over 85 families have been assisted by Habitat in Monmouth in communities across the Bayshore and the entire service area. The Henn Family home will be the fourth Sandy new home construction by the organization. 

To help support this initiative please share with others to help spread the word and make a donation to help the cause!

Dozens gather for Home Dedication in Sea Bright


Volunteers, staff, and public officials gather for the dedication of the Morris Home in Sea Bright

Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County and Lowe's celebrated the dedication of the new home of Leslie Morris and family on Saturday, Sept. 27. Morris' home of 17 years was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy nearly two years ago. In March, Lowe's partnered with Habitat and Morris to raise the walls of the family's new home in the middle of Times Square to launch a nationwide volunteer registration drive. The Times Square frame was transferred to Sea Bright, where construction was completed on the same lot where the family's previous home stood.

More than 60 Lowe's Heroes employee volunteers joined Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County, Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long, Lowe's and Habitat executives and other notable guests for the dedication.

As we approach the two-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, we reflect on the numerous blessings our affiliate has received. From armies of volunteers, generous supporters, a US President to so much more all coming together to help those still suffering to regain normalcy after disaster.


Our work would not be possible without the support of our small staff, board and the network that has assembled to support our mission and our homeowners. On the following pages we invite you to learn about the incredible advances we've made, the struggles we still face and the commitment the organization has made to continue aiding in recovery efforts and to support affordable housing initiatives in our service area.

As part of our efforts to move forward, we are pleased to announce that we have officially merged as one affiliate. Our two originating organizations, Northeast Monmouth Habitat for Humanity and Western Monmouth Habitat for Humanity, have combined resources, and are now one, a larger, stronger, expanded and merged affiliate dedicated towards helping improve the housing needs serving 83% of Monmouth County. Over the last twenty years, our combined efforts have built 41 new affordable homes, assisted over 85 families in Sandy-related projects and opened a ReStore in Freehold that will be relocating in the near future.
