How One Organization is Changing the Landscape in Syracuse How One Organization is Changing the Landscape in Syracuse

SYRACUSE, N.Y (NCC NEWS) – –  In Syracuse, a local branch of a national organization is changing the landscape of the city of Syracuse through the construction of affordable homes for low-income families.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. The organization is built on the ideal that they are servants to all, finding ways to assist in any measure to help those around them.

Inside of the headquarters located at 514 West Genesee St, in Syracuse is a store called Restore that Habitat for Humanity created. The store was built with the intent to sell refurbished, old, used, recycled supplies back to those who otherwise would not be able to find home products at an affordable price. Restore turns people’s trash into treasure and places that treasure in the face of those who can use it. 

“Providing assistance to those who are in need and using the funds we collect to generate revenue to build homes for those who otherwise could not afford one,” said Nick Barone, Restore manager.

The spirit of giving is one Habitat For Humanity applauds itself on. Volunteers learn not only how to build homes but how to be of service to others and build equity for all.

Through service to others you pay the rent for the space you that up here on Earth. People who wish to volunteer for Habitat For Humanity are encouraged to sign up on their website
