We build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.


through homeownership, we empower

Habitat for Humanity partners with people to help them build a place they can call home. Homeowners work alongside volunteers to help build their own homes, which they then purchase with an affordable mortgage. To us and millions of people around the world, there is no better expression of love than to help our neighbors purchase their own home. 

For more than 25 years, we've worked alongside our neighbors to build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.

Every day in the Capital District, families dream of having a healthy, affordable home of their own. Having a stable home in which to live means that children often do better in school, families and communities are healthier, and parents often get better jobs and improve the family's financial situation.


Habitat helps families acquire a forever home. 


We believe every child should have the opportunity to grow up and thrive in safe conditions, every parent should have the dignity of providing their kids with a stable home, and every family should have the chance for a decent life that allows them to create multi-generational assets. Because of these beliefs, we have set bold goals for the future. To learn more about our goals and vision, read our FY17-19 strategic plan here
