Use your voice for change and help us end poverty housing worldwide

While building homes is central to Habitat’s mission, changing the systems, policies, attitudes and behaviors that lead to inadequate housing and homelessness are just as important. 

U.S. Housing and Community Development

To serve even more families, we are expanding our focus in the United States to community goals and needs, and beyond constructing one new home at a time.

Through our Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NR), we are incorporating home rehabilitation, critical home repair, and weatherization.

NR combats poverty housing and stabilizes communities across the country, while continuing to provide homeownership opportunities to low-income families.

Access to Shelter Globally

More than 1.6 billion people around the world live in slum housing and it is expected that this number will grow to 2 billion by 2030.

We believe that every man, woman and child should have a safe and affordable place to live.

Operating in nearly 80 countries, Habitat for Humanity is providing a range of solutions to families across the globe.

From secure land tenure to water and sanitation to housing finance, we ensure programs and advocacy meet the needs of the local community.

Volunteerism and Service

With the support of programs like AmeriCorps, Build Louder Global Village advocacy trips, and youth volunteer programs, we are expanding our abilities and ultimately serving more people.

Together, we are also developing resources to engage veterans in volunteerism and to provide access to quality housing.

Service is central to meeting our mission and goal of ending poverty housing around the world.

Response to Disasters

A disaster and its aftermath can be devastating.

However, the effects of disasters can be reduced through careful planning, early preparation and attention to long-term reconstruction.

Adequate housing plays a big role after a disaster and is often a family’s most important asset.

Habitat for Humanity helps policy makers look beyond the emergency stage, promote communication across sectors, tackle land tenure issues and ensure sufficient funding after a disaster.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
