Hudson Valley students will be working on walls they built for a Habitat for Humanity home, which will be built on Schenectady Street in Schenectady. The project is the result of a relationship between the college and Habitat for Humanity where students gain first-hand experience in building a home while the organization receives free labor.

DIRECTIONS: Enter the Hudson Valley Community College campus via South Road (the entrance across from the Country Grove restaurant). Follow South Road through the stop sign and take your first left into the parking lot. Hudson Hall is the building located directly north of the parking lot.
