Our first impact is on shoppers, who find great treasures at bargain prices. When you spend less on furnishings and building materials for your home, you have more dollars to use for other purposes.
The second impact is on the environment. Each year, the Morris Habitat ReStore saves 700 tons of usable materials from being trucked to out-of-state landfills. What does 700 tons look like? Picture 350 cars or 234 adult elephants or 5 adult blue whales! Learn more about the advantages of reusing materials>>
The Store That Builds Homes
The final impact is on the many families who live in the affordable homes built or preserved by Morris Habitat for Humanity. Since 1985, Morris Habitat has served over 400 families through its homebuilding, rehab, preserving and international housing solutions programs. Locally, we have built or rehabbed 84 homes and preserved 105 homes. Since the ReStore opened in 2007, its profits from selling donations have funded the construction of 22 affordable homes for low-income and middle-income families.
In our 10th Anniversary year, the ReStore sponsored a 4-bedroom home for Nelly and Julio Carmona and their three children at 27 Harding Avenue in Dover. Donations from individual shoppers of nearly $6,500 were combined with monthly ReStore proceeds. Morris County is one of New Jersey’s most affluent counties, and yet there are thousands of families living in inadequate or substandard housing because they can’t afford the area’s high prices. Whenever possible, we build sustainable, energy-efficient and healthy housing.
We Are Changing Lives
Building homes does more than put a roof over someone’s head. In clean, decent, stable housing, the lives of hardworking families are enhanced and strengthened. You can read about the experiences of some of the Habitat families on the Homeowner Stories page. By shopping or donating to the ReStore, you can help create our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
