36 West Broadway (Oneonta):

This past week we completed papering the roof, so we are now dry. All of the blueboard insulation has been installed on the outside of the house and the joints have been taped. Framing for the soffit has been started. Windows and exterior doors were delivered to the site. NYSEG has approved installation of electric and gas and the site has been entered into their system for installation.

Next week framing for the soffit will be completed, and windows and doors will be installed. St. Mary's RC church in Oneonta has been scheduled for siding installation on October 29 with a rain date of November 5.

McFarland Meadows (Oneonta):

The entrance road is finished, including the blacktop. The next task scheduled for completion is installing the required signage.

We always need land!

We are looking for a building plots in the Oneonta and Cooperstown School District. If you are able to donate land, or know of some inexpensive land for sale anywhere in the county, please either email us or call 432-7874


This is a list of stuff that we sure wish we had. Remember, your donations are tax-deductible and we can supply you with a receipt. Call our office at 432-7874, leave a message about how you'd like to help, and we'll get back to you.

Pennies from Heaven:

Cash – we are always grateful to receive, in any amount. And stop by our office to check out our Habitat merchandise – books, hammers, notecards – all priced to sell!

All your worldly goods:

We always need refreshments for our laborers. Lunches, morning snacks, and juice, iced tea, lemonade, and sports beverages would be terrific.

We need people to volunteer behind the scenes
on our family, fundraising, public relations, and volunteer committees. And people for our Board of Directors. For a relatively small donation of your time, you will receive a world of fun and friendship in return.
We would like a person who has the experience and contacts to promote us to local and county governments.
We would also like a person with photo/video experience who could develop a promotional video!
And if you have specific building skills to bring to the site
(and maybe a desire to teach or lead a small crew) – wow!
