LIBOR Joins Habitat for Humanity for a REALTOR® Volunteer Build Day


For Realtors®, providing home ownership opportunities comes naturally, but finding affordable homeownership opportunities can be challenging. Over the past nine years the Long Island Board of Realtors®, Inc. (LIBOR) have sponsored the building of Habitat for Humanity homes across Long Island.  On June 18, 2015 a team of Realtors® volunteered their time and effort to join HFH in building a home for a deserving family in Wyandanch.

As an organization LIBOR is committed to assisting New Yorkers in achieving the American Dream of homeownership, and we’re proud to be able to offer our assistance to Habitat for Humanity, whose sole mission is to see these dreams become reality. Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk is an independently operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.   For 25 years, Habitat Suffolk has empowered over 175 families to achieve their dreams of homeownership through their affordable housing program. Habitat Suffolk’s goal is to build an average of 10-12 houses annually, building for as long as needed to make sure every family in Suffolk County has a simple, decent and affordable place to live and call home.

Making a difference in our communities and touching lives in the neighborhoods in which we serve is what LIBOR's "We're More Than Realtors®" campaign is all about. The “We’re More than Realtors®” campaign was created by LIBOR’s Public Relations Committee in 2006. Through this campaign, LIBOR supports numerous organizations such as Habitat, as well as philanthropic programs and charitable community efforts here across Long Island and throughout the world.
