habitat for humanity international
Families in need of affordable housing live everywhere: small towns and villages, sprawling cities, your community. Housing need presents itself wherever people live and work, and it takes many forms and has far-reaching effects.
While the vast majority of Americans feel stable and secure in their current situation, housing insecurity touches nearly half of adults at some point in their lives. Across the globe, urban populations have increased rapidly, often outstripping available housing.
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. HFHI is managed by employees and volunteers and is overseen by an international board of directors and senior leadership staff who deeply believe that all people deserve a decent place to call home. Their work and guidance allows Habitat to address the needs of poverty housing both by building decent, affordable homes and by working with city, state and country governments to address problems that create housing crises.
Habitat works directly with families to help them acquire the access, skills and financial education necessary for them to be successful homeowners. By partnering with us, families seize the opportunity and possibility that decent, affordable housing represents. Through shelter, we empower.
