Greater Cleveland Habitat For Humanity
Last updated on February 24, 2015


Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity, a Christian-based organization, develops opportunities for all of God's people to act out their faith. By working in partnerships to eliminate substandard housing, we enable families and volunteers to improve lives. We create hope by building homes, strengthening neighborhoods and reweaving communities.

Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity is a 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) nonprofit charitable organization that offers qualified families, with demonstrated need, willingness to partner, and the ability to pay a zero-interest loan, an opportunity to build and buy a home. We bring urban and suburban communities together to “eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action”. As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we are part of a worldwide powerhouse building in 3,000 locations across 100 countries.

Individuals, corporations, congregations, and organizations donate money to buy building materials and support operations. After an extensive application process, Partner Families invest at least 500 hours in the Habitat process, including substantial volunteer time in the construction of their own safe, affordable, energy efficient, home. They then purchase the home with a no-interest, no-profit mortgage.

Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity started in Americus, Georgia with a mission to eliminate poverty housing across the globe. Today, Habitat is one of the largest home builders in the world, operating in over 100 countries. A comprehensive history of Habitat is available at the Habitat International website.

Cleveland Habitat has completed over 160 homes since 1988. Today, The Cleveland Habitat engages 2,000 volunteers, who provide over 70,000 hours of service per year to Cleveland's most distressed neighborhoods.
