About Us

Habitat Detroit’s mission has a hyper-local focus with a world vision which engages donors, homeowners, neighbors, and volunteers working together to build better living environments.


As a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry that builds with people in need regardless of race or religion, we welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.

Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity International has helped more than 1 million families — representing 5 million people — improve their living conditions. Habitat for Humanity Detroit was founded in 1986 and has served nearly 400 families in Detroit moving them from substandard and poverty living conditions to more stable home environments.


There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and substandard living conditions with more than 100 million being homeless. Habitat helps by building or renovating simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need.

Families left homeless by natural disasters, war, economic and civil unrest often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives. We provide shelter and housing assistance to help these families recover.
