We are the Cornell Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Partnering with families, community volunteers, area businesses, and other organizations, Habitat helps transform lives. Together, we build affordable and sustainable houses that become the foundation of our homeowners’ paths to strong, stable and independent lives and futures for themselves and their children.

For those interested in joining our club, or those looking to give back and participate in a build, all information can be found on the 'Schedule' Tab above. Please contacts us with any questions you may have.
