About Habitat for Humanity

The 2019 Dutchess Dragon Boat Race & Festival is hosted by

and all proceeds from the event go to their mission to

build strength, stability and self-reliance through homeownership in our community.

Habitat Dutchess is active in our community because everyone deserves a decent place to live.

With dedicated volunteers, business partners and corporate sponsors, Habitat Dutchess has built 5 new homes in the last 4 years. They have also made hundreds of home repairs and improvements in Dutchess County neighborhoods.

“Everyone deserves a safe and decent place to live. By helping people obtain an affordable home to call their own, Habitat is ending the cycle of poverty forever.”
