Seeking to put God’s love into action, Houston Habitat brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Incorporated in 1987 as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, Houston Habitat for Humanity dedicated its first home in 1988. To date, more than 995 Houston Habitat homes have been built housing over 3980 people, from infants to the elderly. Houston Habitat builds affordable energy-efficient homes and through its neighborhood revitalization initiatives, repairs existing older homes for low income families. Houston Habitat complies with the Federal Fair Housing Act in the marketing, sale, and purchasing of properties. All applicants receive consideration for home ownership without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, questioning, family or marital status. As the non-profit has grown, support services added include Family Services, Mortgage Services, Volunteer Services and the ReStore. The program annually builds 30-50 new homes, processes 30-50 new mortgages, and repairs 30-50 older homes. Houston Habitat relies on donor support and does not receive funds from Habitat International or United Way. For 27 years, the Houston Habitat mission has basically remained the same, to provide decent housing for low to moderate income families so they might thrive and have hope for a better future.
