Habitat for Humanity
Habitat. We build.
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. A safe, secure, adequate and affordable home changes lives. Families left homeless by natural disasters, war and civil unrest often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Habitat for Humanity provides shelter and housing assistance to help these families recover. There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and more than 100 million are homeless. Habitat helps by building or renovating simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need. Habitat for Humanity houses are simple, decent and affordable to low-income families around the world.
As a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry that builds with people in need regardless of race or religion, Habitat for Humanity welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds. With more than 1,500 local affiliates in the United States and more than 70 national organizations around the world they have helped to build or repair more than 800,000 houses and serve more than 4 million people worldwide.
