Support Habitat

Why Donate to Habitat?

Along with food, water, and clothing, shelter is a basic human need. When you donate to Charleston Habitat for Humanity, you become a part of the movement to ensure that no one is without a decent place to live. We are able to provide affordable housing options to low- to moderate- income members of our community because of your contributions.

The impact of your gift extends well beyond the life of the build. In addition to decent, affordable shelter homeownership means:

  • Safety. Many homeowners live in substandard housing located in at-risk neighborhoods. Moving into their newly built Habitat home provides a greater sense of physical safety not only in the home, but in their surroundings as well.
  • Dignity. Home ownership remains a cornerstone of the “American Dream.” Our partner families take pride in their home and in the success of their achievement of a goal that previously seemed beyond their reach.
  • Security. By moving away from renting and becoming homeowners, Habitat participants are able to provide a greater sense of stability for their families.
  • Opportunity. An affordable monthly mortgage payment frees up income that homeowners can spend, invest, or use to further their educations.
