Habitat for Humanity has built more than one million houses, affecting change in more than 9.8 million lives in over 80 countries around the world. Habitat is a grassroots, Christian organization founded on common ground. We bridge theological, political, racial and economic differences by putting love into action.
Volunteers make a difference by picking up a hammer and helping to change lives. They put their hearts in it. The energy and compassion they bring is invaluable! They often get as much or more from the experience than the families.
These partnerships provide a spark for community improvement. We need your help to continue to fulfill our mission.

THE IMPACT OF OUR PROGRAM ON SOCIETY
Over the years, our efforts have built a sense of purpose and dignity in the lives of people who once had no hope.
A study of Habitat homeowners conducted by a national university revealed:
- 35% reported an improvement in children’s grades
- 68% saw improvement in their financial situation
- 40% reported higher educational goals of the family
- 25% reported decreased family conflict
- 25% reported improved health of the family
Whether you call it random acts of kindness, paying it forward, or good deeds, they are very powerful. That is why almost every religion and culture values and rewards the performance of good deeds. There are many benefits to doing good deeds. Some of these benefits may be very obvious to you, while you may not have considered some of the others. Habitat for Humanity benefited from a generous good deed from Kroger. Kroger not only provided funding for a house, but they provided over 100 volunteers to complete the project! Margaret and her family are the proud recipients of the house sponsored by Kroger! THANK YOU! Together, we're changing lives and making a difference ona house at a time!
