Sponsorships & Partnerships – Opening Doors for 30 Years!

Sponsoring Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna means you are partnering with us in our mission to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable housing in Harford and Cecil Counties. On average, our partner families earn approximately 28% of the area median income. Safe, decent, and affordable shelter plays a critical role in helping families to create a new cycle – one filled with possibilities and progress. Our partner families were among the hardest hit financially by the pandemic and continue to struggle now with rising costs and inflation. Our cost to build has risen dramatically too. The US average cost to build a new home rose 28% between 2020 and 2021 and it continues to rise in 2022. Currently only 4% of our building materials are donated. The remaining 96% are purchased through financial donations, necessary to keep our program going. Your support helps us partner with local families to build the stability and security that a safe, affordable home allows. Whether you are able to fund a full house build or sponsor a day of building, we appreciate your generosity and could not fulfill our mission without your support. In addition to helping the community, Sponsorship & Partnership opportunities* provide positive local recognition for you, your business, group, or organization.
