Habitat for Humanity- What we build

We build new homes that are durable and healthy for the lowest possible cost. We focus on energy efficiency and other sustainable building techniques and materials.

We repair and rehab existing homes. See these amazing transformations.

We help revitalize neighborhoods. Many local Habitats in the United States partner with residents, community leaders and local groups to revitalize neighborhoods. Sometimes, their efforts include building new homes or doing repairs. In the past three years, local Habitats doing neighborhood revitalization also have participated in more than 7,500 community projects, from renovating community centers to helping build community gardens.

We’ve built more than 70,000 new homes and rehabbed or repaired another 100,000 homes through our disaster response and recovery efforts.

We build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Decent shelter is something we all need to thrive, and your help makes that possible for more families every day.
