Here at Decatur's Habitat for Humanity, we partner with people in the community and around the world to help families in our city build a place they can call home. With our help, Habitat homeowners have the opportunity to build their own home alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage through our organization. Habitat homeowners are able to achieve the independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families, and we want to help.
Habitat for Humanity is a partnership, not a giveaway program—Habitat’s homeowner families buy the houses that Habitat builds and renovates. Habitat homeowners also invest hundreds of hours of their own labor working alongside volunteers. As a result, Habitat for Humanity houses are affordable to low-income families around the world.

Decatur Area Habitat for Humanity
brings people together to build homes,
neighborhoods, communities and hope.”
