Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County joins the OceanFirst Charity Challenge

Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County is participating in the OceanFirst Charity Challenge. The Charity Challenge is a crowdfunding campaign funded by the OceanFirst Foundation to celebrate its 20th anniversary. HFHMC is one of 80 organization that have entered the challenge that runs through May 18 and includes a first-prize of $20,000; a second-prize of $7,500 and a third-prize of $2,500 along with weekly challenge prizes.

As of April 28, we have raised over $9,800 for the House that Youth Built in Long Branch and its new partner family the Nolans. We are currently sitting in 2nd 
place - but need your help to get us to 1st!

New partner family announced for House that Youth Built: Meet the Nolans! 

n 2013, Mike Nolan joined a team of Salvation Army volunteers to help serve meals to hundreds of volunteers as part of Habitat for Humanity's Carter Work Project in Union Beach that assisted families affected by Hurricane Sandy. On the final day of the build, he had the chance to meet two of Habitat's most famous ambassadors, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Fast forward three years, Mike Nolan and his family are about to take the ultimate next step of the Habitat journey together.

In mid-April, the Nolans were selected as the next partner family for the House that Youth Built project in Long Branch. Since the Carter Work Project, Mike, the manager of the Wind Mill in Long Branch, has volunteered with the affiliate, not only with the Salvation Army, but also as a construction volunteer on many of our worksites.
When the call for applications came in late January, Mike saw it as an opportunity to take the next step with his family - the dream of a home to call their own. A bonafide family man, Mike is a committed father who has worked tirelessly to provide for his family despite many setbacks and challenges that many people would find insurmountable. Now, Mike, his wife Samantha, and two children Travis and Alexandria will embark on this exciting new phase of their life - partnering with their community to build a safe and affordable new home.
