About Us

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, durable place to live safely, with dignity.

We think decent shelter is a need the entire community should take so seriously that they make sure it can be met. We don?t give handouts; we give families a hand up.

We are a Christian ministry. Habitat for Humanity puts God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Instead of handing out houses, we train future homeowners and build houses with them.

We are committed to ending homeless and unsafe housing by building and restoring homes, advocating for fair and just housing policies, and providing training and access to resources.

As the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we are focused on helping the Gainesville area. Nationally, we have helped build or renovate over 600,000 houses since 1976.

In addition to partnering with local families on new home construction with a no profit, 0% mortgage, we actively seek to collaborate with local organizations and resources to help all families who desire to own a home but face financial, credit, or debt challenges and provide valuable community education.
