What we do

Home > What we do

At Habitat for Humanity, we believe in a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.

We work in partnership with families to build or improve a place they can call home. Access to safe housing provides more than a roof overhead. It means safety and security. It offers children a space to study, is instrumental in improving the health and wellbeing of families, acts as a base to start a thriving home enterprise and provides a solid foundation to break the cycle of poverty.

The building of safe and decent homes forms part of our broader community development program that also addresses disaster risk reduction, water, sanitation and hygiene, urban development, land tenure, market development and advocacy.

In Australia, our domestic programs are delivered through our state partners and focus on helping vulnerable families access affordable housing solutions.
