How To Help

Everyone deserves a decent place to live, and everyone can do something to make that possible for another family.

Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and they pay an affordable mortgage. With your help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
