about houston habitat

Since 1987, individuals, businesses and groups in our community have joined Houston Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place people call home.

Through shelter, we empower people to build a better future for themselves and their families by completing financial and home maintenance training, building homes alongside volunteers, and by purchasing their homes with an affordable mortgage. With this hand up, they achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance.

Houston Habitat for Humanity is a tax-exempt 501(C) (3) nonprofit organization. Your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law. Contact us today and see how your financial support, voice and time can help families build better futures.

Over 5,000 - and counting - families served through new homeownership and home repair since 1987
