About Habitat Nelson

Habitat for Humanity Nelson provides a range of programmes aimed at building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter in the Nelson Tasman region.


Our Programmes & Services

  • Progressive Home Ownership

    Progressive Home Ownership is our rent-to-buy partnership programme, providing families with stability and self-reliance.
  • Community Rentals

    We are a social landlord, which sets us apart and guides us to allocate our warm, dry, safe and secure homes based on need.

    The cabins offer transitional housing accommodation to people in the local community while they wait for social housing to become available.
