Based in Manhattan, Eclectic Builders is an interior renovation company that has styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. A company that strives to give back, Eclectic Builders is a longtime monthly supporter of Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity International began in 1976 thanks to Millard and Linda Fuller, who developed a partnership housing concept. They centered on those who needed adequate shelter and paired them with volunteers to construct affordable homes at no cost to the new homeowners. Since it began, the nonprofit organization works in almost 1,400 U.S. communities and 70 countries. It has helped almost 10 million people.

For more than three decades, Habitat for Humanity has joined partners across the globe to celebrate World Habitat Day. Celebrated on the first Monday in October, this day promotes the idea that everyone deserves a stable residence. The United Nations General Assembly initiated this day, which was first celebrated in 1986. The 2018 World Habitat Day is scheduled for October 1, and communities across the world will encourage others to ensure that adequate and affordable housing options are available.
