Where we work

World map highlighting the five regions where Habitat works, which are detailed on this page

Habitat for Humanity works in more than 70 countries grouped into five regions — we have helped more than 46 million people improve their living conditions since 1976.

Habitat works together with families, local communities, volunteers and partners from around the world so that more people are able to live in affordable and safe homes. Our advocacy efforts focus on policy reform to remove systemic barriers preventing low-income and historically underserved families from accessing adequate, affordable shelter.
