Charleston Habitat for Humanity began working to provide affordable housing opportunities in the cities of Charleston and North Charleston in 1989. Since then, we have completed 82 new constructions and the rehabilitation of 16 existing homes, improving the lives of more than 600 members of the Charleston community.

At Charleston Habitat for Humanity, we believe in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We work toward that vision in partnership with local churches, companies, and individuals to provide a "hand up"--not a handout--to home ownership.

For more information, please contact Kristen Williams, Director of Development at 843-722-7145 ext.104 or
