Chautauqua Area Habitat for Humanity
- founded in 1989
- an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, an ecumenical Christian housing ministry

Volunteers can make a difference! Individuals and groups are invited to donate their time and talents.
Homeowner Families are selected after an application process based on their need for decent housing, ability to pay on a no-interest mortgage and their willingness to partner with Habitat volunteers including working hundreds of hours of “sweat equity” on a Habitat house.
