    About Habitat for Humanity

    Habitat for Humanity's vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and more than 100 million are homeless. Habitat helps by building or renovating simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need. Families left homeless by natural disasters, war and civil unrest often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Habitat provides shelter and housing assistance to help these families recover.
