Building strength, stability and
self-reliance through shelter
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes, alongside volunteers, and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
OWN A HOME
Our vision is a time when everyone
in Hunterdon and Somerset counties
has a decent place to live.
Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity (Raritan Valley Habitat) is excited to announce the selection of a new partner family to help rehabilitate and ultimately purchase a home in Somerset, New Jersey.
Emma and Herbert Hessenthaler have lived in their Bridgewater home for the past 42 years. Herbert, who has advanced Parkinson’s and A-fib, has been disabled for nearly sixteen years. This has kept him from being able to do any work around the house or even cut the grass. He is currently in hospital, where Emma has been going back and forth daily to help care for him.
