At Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves.


Your donation will help local families break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials. Your support can help us do more in all the many ways that Habitat builds.

The Emily Diamond Planned Giving Society

The Emily Diamond Planned Giving Society is comprised of supporters who make gift plans to benefit Habitat's housing ministry beyond their lifetime—moving us ever closer to the ultimate goal of every person in our community having a decent place to live. This society is named after our founder, Emily Diamond. Emily started Habitat for Humanity STW in 1981, making it the first affiliate in the state and the tenth in the nation. Her compassion for others brought people together to build homes with Habitat homebuyers in our community.
