Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County and Habitat for Humanity of Trenton have merged together effective January 1, 2017. The new affiliate is now known as Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County and Greater Trenton-Princeton (HFHBCTP). After months of discussions, preparation, and the approval of their respective boards in December, the two affiliates decided to join forces to continue to work towards the same mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
In 1986 (Trenton) and 1987 (Burlington) the two affiliates were founded independently. Over the past 30 years they have collectively built 140 homes throughout the Burlington and Mercer area, serving 49 cities and a population of over 800,000.
The merger allows the affiliate to streamline operations and consolidate overhead expenses by pooling their resources, boards and expertise. Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County and Greater Trenton- Princeton will pursue mobilizing volunteers and community partners to provide affordable housing and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Over the next couple of months, staff and volunteers will continue to serve their respective communities, but will now do so as one merged organization.
