• First Habitat affiliate in North Carolina

About Us

Founded in 1983, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity was the first Habitat affiliate in North Carolina. Through Habitat homeownership and home repair programs, nearly 1,600 adults and children in Buncombe County have achieved the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future. A decent place to call home and an affordable mortgage enables Habitat homeowners to save more, invest in education, pursue opportunities and have greater financial stability.

In the next 10 years, we will empower 1,000 more families to improve their housing and build strong, stable futures. Read our Strategic Plan.
