Based in Georgetown, the Sussex County Habitat affiliate has now constructed 106 homes housing 424 of our neighbors throughout the county.

Seeking to put God’s love into action, SCHFH brings people together to build homes, communities and hope, by offering an affordable, not-for-profit mortgage and valuable homeowner guidance to families who qualify as well as demonstrate need and willingness to partner. Each family volunteers hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” working on their own home and the homes of others during construction.
