Donate a Car to Help Build Homes
Your car donation helps a family build a house and the hope of a better life! You can donate a car, truck, boat, RV or other vehicle to Habitat’s Cars for HomesTM vehicle donation program by calling 1-877-277-4344 or visiting www.carsforhomes.org. Be sure to indicate that you wish the donation to be credited to Habitat for Humanity of Greater New Haven. Otherwise, it will go into the Habitat International general fund.

Cars for Homes takes donated cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, RVs and other vehicles and sells them through automobile auctions, recyclers or salvage yards to raise funds for our homebuilding program. Funds generated from vehicle sales benefit the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate and community where the donation is made. This is a hassle free and easy way to give to Habitat.
