As of August of 2017, Habitat is in the home-stretch on the two Valatie homes. These are the first houses to be built in Valatie as part of the 30 homes by 2020 campaign. Volunteers are needed for the final stages of construction. Work includes interior painting, flooring, doors, trim work, and landscaping. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out an application on our website.
