About Habitat for Humanity of Smith County

Habitat for Humanity of Smith County offers the dream of homeownership to those who would otherwise not be able to afford a home of their own. The new home owners help to build the house alongside many dedicated volunteers in the community. Habitat sells the house to the home owner at cost and finances the mortgage at zero interest.

Habitat provides capital, not charity. It creates a stable environment for children in safe and communal neighborhoods that work and grow together. Local churches, businesses, individuals, foundations and civic organizations work together in our community to make this dream come true.

Be involved in this great endeavor. Join us as neighbors, making a monetary contribution, swinging a hammer, or wielding a paintbrush. We can help families improve their housing... we can help families climb out of poverty. We can change the future of families in need by giving their children a fair chance for a life of hope.

Habitat For Humanity of Smith County is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit, ecumenical, Christian organization. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
