Belmar Welcomes Coastal Habitat For Humanity

The mission to re-enfranchise the homeless and help low-income homeowners repair their dwellings takes a major step forward in Belmar.

Coastal Habitat For Humanity is engaging the borough in its ongoing voluntary tasks aimed at improving the quality of life for people on the financial fringes.

In a prepared statement, Mayor Matt Doherty acknowledges the organization’s focus on helping families with incomes between 25% and 50% of median levels.

“They recognize that help does not always require building a new energy star home for every low income family.” says Doherty. “Instead, for some working-class, low-income families who are already homeowners, it may mean providing a helping hand along with some training, skills, tools, and volunteers to facilitate a home repair or safety solution.”

Among Coastal Habitat’s new ventures is the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative. Components include accessibility upgrades, exterior weatherization, minor house repairs, skills training for homeowners, and alliances with related agencies to form a regional support network.

If you’re interested in seeking or offering services through the organization, contact Executive Director Maureen Mulligan at 732-974-2422 extension 7, or e-mail
