“FPC Englewood strives to build God's world and we're grateful to be able to work with Habitat Bergen on their transformative project,” said Reverend Kellie Anderson-Picallo, Director of Mission Strategy with First Presbyterian Church of Englewood.
“We have a deep and multi-faceted partnership with the First Presbyterian Church of Englewood. They strongly stand behind our mission and having the opportunity to host members of their congregation on our worksite was very special. This group is driven by their faith and that was very evident watching them in action. During a time when they could be focused inward as they rebuild from the fire that affected their sanctuary in March, they are focused outward on serving others. It’s an inspiration to see,” said Pamela Nall, Chief of Staff and Global Village Team Leader with Habitat Bergen.

About Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County
The goal of Habitat Bergen is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the face of the earth by working in partnership with people in need. Using volunteer labor and donated funds and materials, Habitat Bergen builds or rehabilitates simple, decent houses and sells them to low-income families at cost, but with no interest added. Habitat Bergen is a people-to-people partnership, which joins all of us together regardless of race, nationality, religion, or socioeconomic status. That partnership begins with the homeowner families (partner families). Habitat Bergen is not a giveaway program, but a joint venture in which those who benefit from the housing ministry are involved in the work at various levels. They help with the construction of their own home, as well as the houses of their neighbors.
