Habitat for Humanity is a global, nonprofit, Christian housing organization working in approximately 70 countries around the world. Our vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and since our founding in 1976, we have built or repaired over 1 million homes, providing more than 5 million people with safe, decent, affordable shelter! Habitat works toward this vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with people and families in need of a decent and affordable home. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower.
