Habitat for Humanity is a partnership, not a giveaway program—Habitat’s homeowner families buy the houses that Habitat builds and renovates. Habitat homeowners also invest hundreds of hours of their own labor working alongside volunteers. As a result, Habitat for Humanity houses are affordable to low-income families around the world.
In fiscal year 2017, Habitat directly helped 3.5 million people secure decent, affordable housing, and an additional 2.6 million people now have the potential to improve their housing conditions through a range of indirect services. Our annual report provides full details.
Thanks to your financial support, Habitat for Humanity is building and renovating decent, affordable housing in all 50 U.S. states and more than 70 other countries.
