Habitat for Humanity Buffalo (HFHB) is a non-profit ecumenical Christian housing organization. It was founded in 1985 by a group of concerned citizens including Ron Talboys, who had visited the Habitat for Humanity affiliate in Americus Georgia. The Buffalo affiliate of HFHB was the 101st affiliate to be started in the United States. Over the past 26 years, HFHB has worked in all nine council districts of Buffalo and in nearby Lackawanna. The goal of HFHB, and all Habitat for Humanity affiliates, is to eliminate poverty housing in the world.
