Habitat NYC and Westchester is a general contractor that offers existing resident-owned affordable buildings (like HDFC co-ops) high quality construction services at a fair price. Habitat NYC and Westchester’s Housing Preservation Program also offers these clients many pro bono construction services, including needs assessments, letter of recommendation, and scopes of work.

A Brush with Kindness

Our A Brush with Kindness program engages volunteers to paint the common areas, like lobbies, hallways and more, of existing affordable housing buildings. This work saves tenants of the buildings hundreds of dollars, and brightens the spaces, breathing new life into existing housing.
