Driven by the vision that every person deserves a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots movement on a community farm in South Georgia, USA. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities in all 50 states in the US and in more than 70 countries.
The owners of a Habitat home are not mere spectators, but rather participate in the solution of their home. Many work with volunteers, use custom credit, or use other methods. Families and people in need of a helping hand partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home.
Through financial support, volunteering, or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves. Through housing, we empower people.
