What We Do

Studies indicate that safe and decent housing is linked to the emotional, physical and social well-being of families. Kids do better in school, adults have the opportunity to increase their earning potential, and communities are strengthened when their citizens have safe and decent shelter. To help families realize their full potential, we offer a solution of landing in a home of your dreams.  Applicants must qualify based on need, ability to pay and willingness to partner.  We want you to succeed and invest in your home.

  • Simple

    Our houses are modestly sized. They are large enough for the family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.

  • Decent

    We only use quality, locally available building materials. Habitat home designs reflect the local climate and culture.

  • Affordable

    The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.

Habitat houses in the United States and Canada are typically built using wood frame construction, Gypsum board interior walls, vinyl siding and asphalt shingle roofs. Some affiliates also use proven alternative building materials such as adobe or straw bale construction.

U.S. and Canadian Habitat houses are modestly sized by North American standards. Habitat’s guidelines dictate that a three-bedroom Habitat house may have no more than 1,050 square feet of living space.

Our commitment to build with people in need extends to those with disabilities. When possible, Habitat houses incorporate basic accessible design features, such as a zero-step entrance and wide passage doors and hallways. Houses built in partnership with families with disabilities include additional accessibility features.
