HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. Since its inception in 1976, Habitat has built more than 225,000 houses around the world, providing 1 million people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.
Habitat is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety - on terms they can afford to pay. Working in partnership with individual volunteers, faith communities, organizations and the new homeowner families, Habitat for Humanity is building houses and building hope around the world.
Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. There are more than 2,300 active affiliates in more than 90 countries worldwide, including all 50 states in the United States, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico.
