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.


Habitat Skills Centre

The Habitat Skills Centre offers students, unemployed youths, long-term unemployed, job-seeking refugees, return to work participants and community volunteers, the chance to work on our building projects that assist Habitat partner families. This gives participants an opportunity to learn valuable new skills, form friendships and build confidence.

Since the Habitat Skills Centre started in 2012, nearly 70 ‘at risk’ students have successfully completed their Certificate 1 or 2 in Construction and more than 30 long-term unemployed job seekers have gained employment.

The Centre is located in the technical studies building at the former Para West Adult Campus, Davoren Park.
