We believe it all starts at home
At Habitat for Humanity Australia, we believe a stable, secure home creates the foundation for change. A safe home gives people the opportunity to be healthier, happier and more secure, and for children to be better nourished and better educated. We believe building a decent home provides much more than bricks and mortar – it provides real hope for the future.
We provide a hand-up not a hand-out
We don’t give hand-outs, we give people a hand-up by building homes in partnership with families in South Australia. Our partner families contribute their own labour and they purchase the completed home at a significantly reduced cost. We then use the sale proceeds to build more homes for people in need.
Habitat for Humanity has built almost 800,000 houses around the world, sheltering more than four million people. Every four minutes a family has a better home and a better life thanks to Habitat for Humanity, our volunteers and partners.
