Broome County Habitat for Humanity looking to expand its warehouse facility BCHFH has received $30,000 in grants from Tioga Downs and the Klee Foundation to help us build an expanded warehouse facility at our campus on Adams Avenue in Endicott, NY. This additional space will allow us to store oversized building materials and equipment in a more accessible location. We hope to break ground in the Spring. Additional funds are needed to outfit our facility. If you are willing to donate to this project, please go to our Donate page.
Our volunteer crew has begun work on our next Habitat home at 6 Linda Drive
The foundation for our next Habitat home has been completed and plans are in place to move the house from the BOCES campus to our new location this month. After excavation was completed in September, the Habitat crew has set the footers and the foundation for this home. Backfilling the foundation walls and pouring a concrete basement floor are next as we prepare to have the house moved. Applications are now open for prospective partner families to apply for this home.
