Latest Projects from Habitat for Humanity Newburgh


Since completing the East Parmenter neighborhood, Habitat for Humanity has been keeping up with new projects in the city. The picture above is of 55 Chambers Street. This was a gut renovation with some tricky windows. Now, they are getting ready to paint. This section of Chambers, between Broadway and First, is quickly becoming one of the most developed blocks in Newburgh.


Habitat has also been keeping up with its A Brush With Kindness program. Volunteers make smaller upgrades on homes that are close to other Habitat projects to keep the momentum of neighborhood pride and development. Full album is here.


And finally, Habitat is doing a Veterans Build on Clark Street, building 3 new homes where a vacant lot and warehouse used to be. Things are moving fast. Over the weekend the frames were put in place. I’m sure we’ll be seeing siding and roofing up before we know it. Volunteers are always wanted.
