SEEKING TO PUT GOD'S LOVE INTO ACTION, HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER TO BUILD HOMES, COMMUNITIES AND HOPE.
A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE HAS A DECENT PLACE TO LIVE.
Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 as a grassroots Christian nonprofit organization dedicated to the elimination of poverty and substandard housing worldwide. Habitat builds houses in partnership with families who qualify for home ownership based on three criteria: need, willingness to partner with Habitat and an ability to repay a no-interest mortgage. There are more than 2,100 active affiliates in 100 countries and all 50 states. Since 1981 Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West has built nearly 300 affordable new homes with low-income families across western St. Tammany parish. Affordable housing changes lives, you can make a difference in the lives of our home buyers by donating or volunteering.
