Habitat for Humanity of Beaver County

Habitat for Humanity of Beaver County has been putting faith into action in our community since the spring of 1992, partnering with hard-working individuals, families, and volunteers to build homes. Our affiliate was organized by the Men’s Club of the Conway Presbyterian Church in Conway, PA. We have provided homes for families throughout Beaver County and, by means of our tithe to Habitat for Humanity International, we have built over 65 homes outside of the US. Our Mission is to eliminate poverty housing by empowering people to change their lives. In addition, we serve our community by increasing our county’s yearly tax revenue by $95,000 through rehabbing blighted houses or building on vacant lots.
