Dear Friends of Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County!  

Happy New Year! We wish to thank everyone that has supported our mission to build homes, communities and hope throughout Monmouth County in 2015. We look forward to continuing these efforts in the new year. 

In 2016, we are thrilled to bring you new and exciting ways you can support Habitat through volunteering or joining us at any of our events in the upcoming months. 
We can't wait to see you on a worksite or at an outing in the near future! 

THANK YOU for your continued support. 

Yours in service, 

Staff & Board
Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County

Homeownership applications open through March 15
Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County is currently accepting applications for two new partner families for homes in Long Branch and Freehold Borough.  Families are chosen based on their need for housing, their ability to make payments on an affordable zero interest mortgage and their willingness to be active partners with Habitat for Humanity volunteers in the construction of their own home. 
 
In order to qualify for a Habitat for Humanity home, you must be a first-time home buyer, for frequently asked questions see Becoming a Homeowner on www.habitatmonmouth.org. Partner families must also have a good credit report and a total family income between $30,000 and $65,000 per year depending on family size.
 
Our application period will be open until March 15. Click  HERE to access the pre-application form, once your information is reviewed our Family Services team will contact you.

ReStore celebrates one year on South Street on January 30!
Our ReStore in Freehold is celebrating it's one year anniversary on South Street this Saturday. The ReStore collects donated new and gently used furniture and building materials and re-sells the merchandise at deeply discounted prices to support Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County. 

In addition to celebrating the one-year anniversary with refreshments and prizes, the ReStore is collecting clean, new or gently used coats as part of a partnership with One Warm Coat. Now through January 30, the store on South Street in Freehold will serve as a drop off point. Coats will be distributed by the Community Refuge Church of Christ in Manalapan, patrons who donate a coat will receive a 10% discount on their purchase during their visit to the store located at 45 South Street in Freehold. 
 
"We are celebrating one year at our new spacious location, but more than 12 years of operations in Freehold. We are grateful for all the support we have received from donors and staff to volunteers. We hope our larger location continues to attract patrons from across the county, we get unique and fascinating items daily!" said Ray Gabler, executive director, Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County. "We know we are not always going to be a one-stop shop for home improvement needs, however, we think we should be your first stop! It's truly amazing to see some of the things that come through the store," he added. 


 
The Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County ReStore is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Donations are accepted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The ReStore offers free pick up services for large donations, to receive a donation consultation and schedule a pick up call 732-577-8160 or email restore@habitatmonmouth.org
