Make your dreams achievable

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities like Howard County.

How Do We Do It?

Habitat for Humanity builds decent and affordable homes around the world in partnership with families in need of a decent place to live. Habitat home-buyers help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

Habitat for Humanity homes look different around the world to fit in with the many styles and traditions found in the communities where the houses are built. But no matter where they are built, all Habitat houses follow the same guiding principles: 

Decent Housing

Habitat houses are modestly sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs affordable. Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally available building materials. Habitat home designs reflect the local climate and culture.

Affordable Financing

The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes, and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.
