About Us

Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery and Delaware County (Habitat MontDelco) has been dedicated to the elimination of poverty housing since its founding in 1989. Until 2013, our focused was exclusively on the home buying program. Recently, however, Habitat Montco has expanded not only create homeownership opportunities, but to create stronger and safe communities as a whole.

Habitat MontDelco remains dedicated to its Home Buying program, which allows residents who would otherwise have trouble purchasing their own home to achieve home ownership. The Critical Home Repair program helps seniors, veterans and physically disabled people stay in homes that require costly extensive repairs. Habitat MontDelco strengthens neighborhoods in Montgomery County through the Neighborhood Revitalization program, which encompasses an 11-block area of Norristown and a 6-block area of Pottstown. Empowering residents with the tools to work together to beautify their neighborhoods and build neighborhood associations, results in lower crime and higher property values. Our final program, Almost Home, is a financial literacy and life skills course. Offered at no cost to Montgomery and Delaware County residents, Habitat MontDelco has learned that helping residents become homeowners or repair their homes fails to have long-term impact if those residents continue to find themselves in financial distress. The Almost Home program empowers individuals and families to take control of their finances, set realistic financial and life goals, and achieve housing stability for the long-term.
