• First Habitat affiliate in North Carolina

    About Us

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, more than 2,100 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. Learn more in our 40-Year Impact Report.

In December 2021, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity and Madison County Habitat for Humanity joined forces to strengthen Habitat for Humanity in our region. As a combined organization serving Buncombe and Madison Counties, more families will be served with life-changing homeownership and home repair programs in the coming years. More families will thrive, rather than survive.

Between 2018 and 2028, we will empower 1,000 more families to improve their housing and build strong, stable futures. Read our FY23-25 Strategic Plan.
