About UsWho Does It Take To Build A Habitat House?

We are a Michigan charitable nonprofit organization dedicated to building simple low-cost homes by forming partnerships with low-income families in need of decent and affordable housing. We believe homeownership is a vital step to help families break the cycle of poverty and contributes to pride in families and communities.

At Macomb County Habitat for Humanity, we offer a hand up, rather than a hand out. Through our volunteer network, generous donors, and sales from our two Habitat ReStores, we’re helping families achieve the strength, stability, and self-reliance they need to build a better life.

According to a survey of more than 400 Habitat homeowners, 53 percent said they are more financially stable since moving into their Habitat home; two-thirds are more confident about their ability to fund their children’s college education; and almost 40 percent said they pay less in housing costs.
