Does Habitat only focus on building new houses?
No, Habitat works in a number of different ways to create decent, affordable housing. In addition to new construction, Habitat also renovates existing buildings in many communities, particularly in urban areas.
Habitat’s A Brush with Kindness and Neighborhood Revitalization help people repair and improve their own homes and neighborhoods.
Our Disaster Response program also works with local communities to address a variety of housing needs after natural disasters.
Habitat’s partnerships and advocacy work help raise the awareness and support needed to address housing needs around the world
