With God’s grace and the cooperation of people from all walks of life, Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity partners with families in need to build and own simple, decent, affordable homes in safe communities.
Habitat’s mission is a direct reflection of the urgent need for decent and affordable housing in our community, especially among very low-income families. Habitat is unique in that we provide a lasting and permanent solution to a family’s housing crisis.
Habitat is a hand up, not a handout. In addition to making a minimal down payment and 0% interest mortgage payments, homeowner families are required to commit 500 hours of ‘sweat equity’ building their own home and the homes of other Habitat families.
