Home / Congregation & Mission / PresbyBuild / Overview

Building Houses, Building Hope
PresbyBuild is a mission project in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh that is supported by 12 congregations of the Presbytery of Hudson River--Chester, Cold Spring, Cornwall, Goshen, Highland, Marlboro, Monroe, Montgomery, Newburgh Calvary, Newburgh Union, New Windsor Bethlehem, and Washingtonville First.

These congregations provide on-site volunteers, mission grants, fundraising activities, administrative assistance, meeting spaces, prayers, and other volunteer services.

In a partnership among the PresbyBuild churches, the Presbytery, and Newburgh Habitat and their partner families, we work to provide decent, affordable housing, restore a sense of community with strong neighborhoods and dignity through home ownership. PresbyBuild's efforts have an international reach as well: Through Habitat's system of tithing, we have sponsored four additional houses in Ethiopia and Mexico.

It is our conviction that these efforts, by the grace of Christ, manifest the presence of God's shalom.
