Amy’s goal for her real estate business is to use her professional platform to make a measurable impact for those less fortunate. Through her association with “Give Back Homes” (which works in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity) Amy Harris builds homes for families in need. Right now she is helping to finance a home that will be built for a family in New York City .
Here’s how it works; every time she has a transaction, she donates part of her proceeds directly towards the fund to build that actual house. Right now the funding is just starting, but hopefully she will have enough transactions to get this home built sooner rather than later.
You can see the actual amount that has been contributed, and how much more is needed here.

In May 2016, Amy led a team of 9 people to help physically build a home for a family in need in Dover, NJ. Our group helped to carry the wood to the job site and actually lay the wood footings for the foundation and nail them together. It was incredibly gratifying work and its great to know that within the next 6 months a family will have a home of their very own.
Here’s the team in action:
In order for a family to qualify for a new home they must be employed for a minimum of 2 years, have good credit and be able to afford maintain the house and the reduced mortgage payments. There are many ways to help Habitat for Humanity to reach their goals.
