Habitat for Humanity Surpasses One Million Families Sheltered Worldwide

Habitat for Humanity has sheltered more than 1 million families — representing 5 million people in over 70 countries — improve their living conditions since the organisation was founded in 1976.

“We are delighted to achieve this incredible milestone and have seen the positive influence a stable home can have on families,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “Because of a house, families have better access to health, financial security, education and employment opportunities. We want to continue building impact so that millions more people can have decent, safe places to live.”

Habitat’s global mission was made possible in fiscal year 2014 thanks to the hands and hearts of more than 2 million volunteers and the financial support of many generous donors.

Habitat for Humanity Australia is supported by many Corporate Partners, including QBE, Boral and homeheaven.com.au as well as its volunteers who take part in our international volunteering program, Global Village.
