Habitat Builds Affordable Homes

Habitat for Humanity is a global housing organization that works in more than 70 countries and nearly 1,400 communities throughout the United States. Families and individuals partner with us to help build a place they can call home. Habitat builds new homes or rehabilitates older ones for first-time homebuyers. Our site managers oversee our build sites and oversee our paid subcontractors and volunteers. We balance the use of professional and volunteer labor to achieve our goal of serving as many families and individuals as we can, as efficiently and economically as we can.

Qualified homebuyers have the opportunity to purchase a home that is appropriate for the size and composition of their household based on our current projects. Habitat does not build custom homes. To keep the homes affordable, Habitat cannot accept custom design requests.
