Our Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our Mission Statement

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Charleston Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

About Charleston Habitat for Humanity

Charleston Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. Charleston Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Charleston Habitat for Humanity provides affordable home ownership opportunities for working families of moderate income in the cities of Charleston and North Charleston. Since its establishment in 1989, Charleston Habitat for Humanity has built 83 new homes, completed 16 major renovations, and changed the lives of more than 600 Charleston community members.

In addition to providing domestic housing solutions, Charleston Habitat for Humanity supports ongoing construction efforts in Honduras. Forty-five homes in La Ceiba, Honduras have been built thanks to tithes from Charleston Habitat for Humanity to the international mission.

All Are Welcome

Charleston Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distractions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate, and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide.
