New Home Construction

Everyone deserves a decent place to live. Through our new home ownership program, Houston Habitat helps families obtain affordable homeownership, the catalyst that propels a family to strength, stability and independence.

Potential homeowners partner with Houston Habitat by investing up to 250 hours of sweat equity which includes completing financial and home maintenance training and building their homes alongside volunteers.  They then purchase their homes with an affordable mortgage.

Learn about Homeownership


Houston Habitat has found that it is more than just possible to build sustainably – it’s affordable.  By carefully choosing materials and building methods, Houston Habitat builds homes which are environmentally friendly, safe, healthy and energy-efficient and which have low costs-to-own/maintain for our homeowners.

Houston Habitat’s commitment to sustainability has earned us numerous awards for sustainable building practices, including Energy Star Partner of the Year/Sustained Excellence awards for 1996-1998, 2007-2011 and 2013-2020.  Prompted by the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey, Houston Habitat is currently investigating ways to prevent and/or mitigate damage from flooding.

Disaster Home Repair

Through our Disaster Home Repair Program, Houston Habitat helps preserve affordable homeownership by repairing disaster-damaged homes for low-income homeowners. Repairs include everything needed to make homes safe, sanitary and secure, including mold testing and remediation. Funding from generous donors helps Houston Habitat defray costs.  Our program helps preserve Houston’s dwindling affordable housing stock and allows homeowners to remain in their homes and rebuild their lives.
