Your Impact is the Solution
Since our founding in 1990, all families who have completed our homeownership program have had a 100% success rate with zero foreclosures or defaults! Charity Navigator has ranked us in the top 1% of non-profits – with 96% of all donations going to build and repair more homes.
Habitat homebuyers help build their homes alongside community volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. All household members 18 years and older are required to participate in some form of “sweat equity” – our homebuyers complete 250 hours per head of household. This helps them build their future home and take homebuyer education courses to prepare them for success. As a result, our homebuyers thrive in their homes with a total foreclosure rate of 0% since our inception.

Seniors, veterans and other low-income homeowners find financial relief and stability through our low-cost, nonprofit home repair program. The repairs ensure the safety, security and sustainability of our clients’ homes.
