Habitat Young Professionals


Essex County Habitat Young Professionals engages local young professionals as leaders, volunteers, advocates, educators, and donors to further our mission.

Throughout the year we have many events to help us achieve our primary goals:

  • Increase awareness of the need for affordable housing and the role that we play in addressing that need locally in Essex County.
  • Raise funds to help us deliver on our mission of building more safe and affordable homes.
  • Build a strong sense of community among supporters, donors, volunteers, community stakeholders and our Habitat families through various events including home dedications and volunteer appreciation events.
