Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County

Responsible Partnership

We work with needy families who demonstrate that they are financially responsible, motivated, and committed to working with Habitat to build a better future for themselves.

Build STRONG families and community, one home at a time

The average Habitat home costs about $150,000 to build. We make a big investment in one family at a time. Why? Because research shows that home ownership is perhaps the most powerful tool available for uplifting the social, economic and health wellness for families and communities. Home ownership can benefit a family for generations.

A gift that keeps giving

Because families who partner with Habitat buy their homes, the value of your gift is returned to Habitat through their mortgage payments and recycled again and again to build more homes. Your donation leaves a lasting legacy, that helps not just one, but many families build strength, stability, independence, and shelter through home ownership!

A Hand-up – Not a Hand-out

Families partner with Habitat for Humanity. We build homes with families so they can have a decent and affordable home. The families who partner with us work very hard along side us. building decent affordable shelter is powered by donations from our community.
