The overwhelming need for housing in our communities has provided Habitat For Humanity with a unique opportunity to change lives in our local neighborhoods.

Affordable, decent housing is one of our most basic human needs, yet it is in alarmingly short supply in our very own neighborhoods and throughout the world. A decent place to call home creates stability, launching families onto a positive trajectory of generational change that includes hope, improved health, and a better quality of life.

Since its founding, Habitat for Humanity International has built more than 800,000 homes, providing shelter for over 1 million people in nearly 80 countries. A new Habitat home is completed somewhere in the world every 21 minutes!

Working with volunteers, families and individuals, corporations, congregations and donors locally in Central Ohio, Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio and Habitat for Humanity of Delaware and Union Counties are able to tackle this important housing issue throughout Central Ohio.

Local Habitat chapters are dedicated to making possible for low-income, hardworking families and individuals throughout Ohio.

Join Thousands of Volunteers in Giving Back

Habitat For Humanity believes everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live and everyone is welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.

This gift will be used to support our Neighborhood Revitalization programming. In April 2020 we kicked off our first community impact awareness campaign, Imagine Impact.

In light of recent events, we know that we must rise up and meet the affordable housing needs in our community. With your help, we’ll do just that. Again, we are grateful for your continued support and the support of Homesmith as we continue to change lives.”
