Habitat Takes on “Rescue Me” Homes of S. Miller


Habitat for Humanity of Newburgh recently announced their new rehabilitation projects on South Miller Street. The house numbers are 22, 24, and 26; all houses have been featured as Rescue Me homes. Judging from the few photos Habitat posted to their Facebook page, these buildings are deteriorating fast. They will eventually be offered to home owner occupants, changing the vacant tide of South Miller one house at a time.

The Newburgh Community Land Bank also has vacant homes available for purchase on this block if you are interested.

  • I’d like to point out that, despite recent murder and negative press in the Record, Newburgh’s YTD violent crimes through the end of June are down over 15 percent from the same period in 2014! In fact, violent crime has been decreasing steadily since at least 2010. This is almost certainly a direct result of the safe and financially stable communities that Habitat has been building. I’ll be at the Miller Street site this Saturday.
