33rd & Oxford Construction

Homes Built by Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia

33rd & Oxford Community

Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia will break ground this spring on 21 new homes to be constructed near 33rd and Oxford Streets. As a member of the local community, our promise is to be transparent throughout our build process and will share news, updates and resources here.

Check back often as this page will be updated throughout construction, and we look forward to welcoming 21 new, local families who will call this community HOME!

Construction Update
April xx, 2022

In need of Habitat or related services?

No matter who you are or where you come from, everyone deserves a decent place to live. People in Habitat’s Homeownership Program partner to build brighter futures for themselves and their families. We work with individuals who might not otherwise qualify for a traditional mortgage.

Homeownership Program

Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s Home Repair programs build on Habitat’s traditional partnership model using affordable payment options, sweat equity, and volunteer labor to work alongside homeowners to maintain safety and security in their homes, make necessary critical repairs, or pay utility bills.

Home Repair Program

Don’t qualify for a Habitat program? In need of a different housing service?
There are many other organizations across Philadelphia that may be able to help.

Philly Housing Resources

Before adding good neighbors, HFHP wants to be a good neighbor by giving you a preview of what to expect as building takes place, so that any impact along the way can be as minimal and manageable as possible.

If you have concerns during our construction process, please reach out to us at 215-765-6000 or pagestreet@habitatphiladelphia.org.

HFHP has staff working both on the construction site and in our office to manage construction issues and neighborhood relations matters. The folks most-directly involved in the day-to-day details of the 33rd & Oxford Homeownership Project are:

HFHP On-site Build Team:
Carlo Arjona, Senior Project Manager

Nate Flanigan, Build Project Manager

HFHP Neighborhood Outreach and Community Engagement:
Carrie Rathmann, Director of Strategic Partnerships


Interested in learning more about land development in the City?

The land development process in the City can be challenging to navigate. We will be sharing opportunities to learn more through Habitat but please check out our partners at Jumpstart Philly and the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority/Land Bank.
