Everyone deserves a decent place to live

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Our philosophy is “a hand up, not a hand-out.” We work in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing to make positive and lasting change.

By helping to build, renovate and preserve homes, and serve communities through our wide range of programmes, Habitat for Humanity works towards a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
