Habitat for Humanity of Berks County is a 501 (c) 3 organization that provides a first-time home ownership program. Our vision of giving a “hand up” rather than a “hand out” has helped many families in Berks county achieve their dreams of owning a home. Recent success stories include 140 Oley Street, a house remodeled by Habitat, which has been occupied by the De La Paz family since June. Current projects include 638, 648, and 666 Tulpehocken Street, and future endeavors include the Buttonwood Gateway project.
