We believe everyone deserves a decent place to live.

Learn more about how Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope!

Habitat homeowners purchase their home. We provide affordable financing and payment plans to ensure homeowners spend less than 30% of their monthly income on housing costs.

Habitat homebuyers invest hundreds of hours of their own labor, called sweat equity, working alongside volunteers and other Habitat homeowners.

Working together, we build more than houses, we build community.

YES! Habitat follows a non-discriminatory practice. Prospective Habitat homeowners must:

1. Demonstrate a need for safe, affordable housing;

2. Be willing to partner with Habitat to help build, volunteer, and prepare for homeownership; and,

3. Be able and willing to pay an affordable mortgage.

Many studies of low-cost housing show that affordable housing has no adverse effect on other neighborhood property values.

Habitat for Humanity believes our approach to affordable housing improves neighborhoods and communities by strengthening community spirit, increasing the tax base, and building relationships through the cooperative efforts involved in the Habitat for Humanity homeowner program.

1. Volunteer: Build a home, plan with a committee, or lead with our board of directors.

2. Donate: Give cash, a vehicle, or goods and services.

3. Connect Us: Introduce us to partners to open the ReStore, build housing, and community.

4. Reach Out: Learn more about the need for quality, affordable housing and how you can help.
