Who We Are

Greene County Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1996 by John Ludwig as a chartered affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Habitat volunteers build new homes in partnership with future homeowners, with support and resources from the local community, creating safe, decent, and affordable housing for Greene County families.

With continued support from the community, through both monetary donations and volunteer services, Habitat has constructed and sold sixty-six homes. Greene County Habitat for Humanity is the largest non-profit residential builder in the Lake Country.

Mission & Vision

The mission and vision of Greene County Habitat for Humanity are anchored in the desire to end poverty housing within our community and the belief that everyone should have a safe, decent, affordable place to live.


A world where everyone has a safe,
decent place to live.


Seeking to put God’s love into action, Greene County Habitat For Humanity brings future homeowners & volunteers together to build safe affordable Homes, Communities, & Hope.


To improve the quality of living conditions which will strengthen our families and the entire community.

How We’ve Served Greene County

Greene County Habitat for Humanity builds strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. 

Habitat homeowners build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

With our help, those homeowners achieve the independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.


Serving Greene County Since 1997.

“Some people inherit money, some people inherit poverty. It's hard to think outside of the scope of poverty. What Habitat offers — a hand up is a different kind of inheritance: hope.”

“Habitat builds strength, stability, and self-reliance. Seeing the growth in our families through their home preparation classes and over the years as they grow as homeowners, I have seen first hand that this program works. What Habitat does is much more than just sheltering people. It’s what it does for people on the inside. By their own initiative, through their own pride and hope, they change.”

Executive Director
“After working side by side with future Habitat homeowners — I’ve learned that I’m the one who is on the receiving end of things more than anyone else.”
