What we do in Australia

In Australia, Habitat for Humanity supports low-income families and vulnerable groups in accessing safe shelter. This includes building or repairing shelters, and disaster risk reduction and recovery. Many of our programs rely on the amazing support and hard work of our generous volunteers and partners. We currently operate in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.

What we do overseas

We work in partnership with the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) and our global Habitat for Humanity offices to deliver our international programs overseas. We partner with communities across the Asia Pacific region to address housing problems and to support integrated community development.

Support our cause

We rely on the generous support of our donors to build a better world for families around Australia and the Asia Pacific region. We’ve served nearly 60 million people globally, and will continue to support the world’s most vulnerable families in accessing safe shelter.
