About

Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry working in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.

Founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller along with his wife Linda, and headquartered in Americus, Ga, HFHI’s work in the United States is accomplished by affiliates. Habitat affiliates are independent, nonprofit [501(c) (3)] organizations that are organized by local citizens and operate with local boards and local volunteers. There are more than 1,300 U.S. affiliates spread among all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers provide most of the labor, and faithful individual and corporate donors provide the money and materials to build Habitat houses.  Habitat’s mission is to eliminate poverty housing from the earth. Habitat has taken its vision of a world with no more shacks to 53 nations.
