Habitat brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope, and envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live within our service area and around the world.
People in our community and around the world partner with Habitat to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With our help, Habitat homeowners achieve strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. Habitat is the only provider of this unique and needed combination of program services in the rural-agricultural and tourism-based communities along the eastern slopes of the Wasatch Mountains.
