Why is Habitat Building in Whitesboro?
It's true- in the past several years, Habitat for Humanity Cape May County has been focusing its construction efforts on the Middle Township community of Whitesboro. Why? Quite simply, because Middle Township has made property available to Habitat, both as via donation and sale, as part of their commitment to support the creation of affordable housing. Our Whitesboro projects have included a new home on Reeves Street in 2012, and houses on East Anna Street and Sumner Street in 2013. Three more stick-built homes are scheduled for construction on township-donated lots on Sumner Street and West Anna Street during 2014-15.
Due in part to the generosity of Middle Township, Habitat is able to sell the houses to our homeowner partners at below market rate, which when combined with Habitat's zero interest mortgage, makes the monthly payments affordable for hard-working local families.
