Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is an international, nonprofit organization dedicated to building homes for families living in poverty. The vision of Habitat is to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live. To date, Habitat has helped build over 500,000 decent, affordable houses and served 2.5 million people worldwide.
