Why We Build: Homes
For Habitat, “why” isn’t a question. It’s the answer. It’s why we build. Habitat homes around the world allow families to grow to their fullest potential.

Why We Build: Communities
Habitat builds because decent, affordable housing creates stronger communities. Working together establishes — in some cases, revives — vibrant neighborhoods.

Why We Build: Hope
For every family we build alongside, the experience is life-changing. We build for the promise of a new start and a better life. We’ll only get there together.

The World Spins Right (video) 
The world spins right when we all work together to build simple, decent houses with families in need.
