Learn how Habitat helps families grow

Valdosta-Lowndes County Habitat for Humanity believes in helping people help themselves. Homeownership is a crucial foundation for helping people out of poverty and leads to better health. By building homes, we give families a chance to thrive and succeed. We not only build homes but we also help build opportunities for people in our community to have strong foundations, and for children to grow up in safe, happy homes.

We don't build homes for free, our homeowners pay a mortgage at zero interest, making the home more affordable. Our partner families spend up to 500 hours working on their own homes and the homes of others. That's a total of 12 and a half weeks of work! With the help of this community, we have built over 200 homes and helped more than 400 families.
