About Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity
4900 Menaul Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110, US
Our mission is to build community by partnering with working families, sponsors, and communities to build simple, decent, affordable homes - one home, one family at a time. As part of this goal we endeavor to provide support services that promote successful home purchase and ownership.
Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical, Christian housing organization. We work in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing. Our vision is that no one in the Greater Albuquerque area will live in substandard housing. Since 1987, we have built more than 177 homes in the Albuquerque area, all of which we could not have done without the generosity of hundreds of volunteers every year. Volunteers are needed to help with everything from construction to office to ReStore assignments.
