  • Every Family

    Every family needs to feel the confidence that comes from a stable home.
    Families all over the world vary in their size and how they fit together. Regardless of how they became a family, Habitat for Humanity believes that every family deserves a safe place to call home. A place to laugh, a place to grow, a place to love. Our homeownership program provides that opportunity to families looking to flourish in their new surroundings. With a bit of determination and hard work, you too can own a home.

  • Every volunteer can advocate and help more families build strength, stability, and independence.
    Volunteers, partners, and donors are the backbone of our organization. Without people like you, the reality of owning a home would be a distant dream for many of the families we help every day. Even if you’ve never used a hammer before, you can help play a crucial role in our worthwhile and rewarding endeavor to build homes for families looking to improve their living conditions as well as their overall life. Take a moment to think about how you can be the difference maker in someone else’s life by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
