WHAT WE DO

BUILDING FOUNDATIONS FOR A BETTER LIFE

Habitat for Humanity builds brighter futures, strong foundations, healthier children and stronger families.


Every 24 hours Habitat for Humanity completes 115 homes around the world. The needs of all these families are diverse, but so are the Habitat for Humanity solutions.  We build new homes and we repair others. We help those who have been struck by disaster and we partner in international projects to provide communities with sanitation and clean water. No matter what housing solution we provide, the outcomes are the same: a foundation for a better life.
