    Organization Mission

    Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. We partner with low-income, hardworking people who are determined to create a brighter future by helping to build and then purchasing a home of their own. We seek volunteers and financial support from those who share our goal to create much-needed affordable housing in Saint Louis City and County.

    Contrary to popular belief, Habitat Saint Louis does not give homes away. All of our homebuyers put in a minimum of 350 sweat equity volunteer hours, and take on a 30-year, affordable mortgage payment. Through their sacrifices, our partner families are able to build a more financially and socially stable future.

    Habitat Saint Louis is responsible for raising 95% of our funding locally, and we do not receive significant support from Habitat for Humanity International. We seek the support of those who share our vision of a community made stronger through affordable housing.
