Community partnerships

The generosity of our community partners has enabled Habitat for Humanity to build or repair 800,000 houses and serve more than 4 million people around the world. Our community partners do more than help build homes; they are providing hope and a brighter future for families and entire communities around the world.

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veterans’ organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 2.5 million members, men and women, in nearly 14,000 American Legion posts worldwide. The American Legion encourages Legionnaires to improve their local communities and communities around the world with Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat and the American Legion have created a toolkit to help Legionnaires better understand Habitat’s mission and opportunities for involvement. Affiliates throughout the United States are working with their local Legion post to involve and serve veterans and their families, and the impact—for those served and those that serve—continues to grow.
