Habitat for Humanity South Australia builds, rehabilitates and repairs homes in sustainable communities with support from homeowner families, volunteers, donors and partner organisations.
What we do in South Australia
Home building program
We provide a ‘hand up’ to home partners, not a ‘hand out’.
Habitat homes are sold to home partner families and are financed through affordable long-term loans. We select families based on income, need and willingness to work in partnership with us. We use supervisors, volunteer labour and where possible, donated materials to keep costs low.
We currently have home ownership opportunities in Davoren Park and accept applications throughout the year from families interested in home ownership.
Brush with Kindness
Brush with Kindness is a home repairs and maintenance program, which works in partnership with disadvantaged and socially isolated members of the community who are struggling to restore and maintain a safe and decent place to live.
The program mobilises teams of volunteers to conduct landscaping and minor repairs to the exterior of homes and revitalise the appearance of communities. Such activities have previously assisted families impacted by the Pinery bushfire.
Bushfire Recovery Program
Rebuilding and Restoring Hope for Aussie Families
Habitat for Humanity Australia has committed to providing recovery services to fire-affected families. A Disaster Recovery Team has been on the ground since the smoke cleared restoring hope to communities affected. We are on the ground in South Australia helping salvage and rebuild, to assist homeowners. Our team was there in the aftermath of the 2009 Black Saturday Victorian Fires, the 2013 NSW Blue Mountains Fires and the 2015 South Australian Sampson Flat Fires and with your support, will again be supporting those affected this year. For as long as it takes.
