Habitat homes represent a new start for the families who help build them and serve as a source of safety and pride of accomplishment.


Habitat believes that when we build homes we also build hope, generating growth and change in communities around the world.


We build so that more families can know the security of owning their own home, the improved health of a decent place to live and the unlimited potential that a firm foundation makes possible.



1.6 billion

The number of people around the world who are homeless or living in poverty housing is not acceptable.

Habitat for Humanity

We envision a world where everyone has a place to live. To achieve that goal, we build simple, decent, affordable homes.

1 million volunteers

Each year, we are joined by others who share our vision — first-timers, experts, YOU!



3,000 cities and towns

Habitat creates decent homes in neighborhoods around the world by focusing on local solutions.

600,000 families

Since 1976, Habitat has provided families with much-needed help and support to create new housing and complete rehab and renovation projects.
