every family
deserves a safe, stable, and affordable home

Habitat Greensboro works toward our vision of a world where everyone has a safe and affordable place to live. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering, or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.

We believe that owning a home is a major milestone on the road to a family’s financial success, and a key component of our community’s economic stability. Since 1987, Habitat Greensboro has served over 500 families in Greensboro.

In addition to the homeowners we serve locally, Habitat Greensboro provides funding to our affiliates in Honduras and Jordan, where we have helped to build nearly 500 homes.

Our History

Habitat Greensboro was formed in 1987 by four Christians in response to their Habitat experience in Peru. As one of our founders says: “Time, sweat, perseverance and love have developed the vision into a successful organization and community.” They built five homes that first year, and quickly expanded to build 10 homes annually.

Thirty-two years later, Habitat Greensboro has expanded to nearly 2,000 volunteers and 30 staff who build, renovate, and provide critical repairs to 30 to 35 homes each year.

Our Future

We have big plans for 2020 and beyond. We’re striving to build more quality, energy-efficient homes for hardworking families, to create thriving neighborhoods, and to strengthen families in the process.
