Why Your Support Matters
When you support Greene County Habitat for Humanity, you support our partner families as they team up with our volunteers to build their own decent, safe, affordable homes in Greene County.
Since 1996, the 66 houses we’ve built represent 66 families who have established a foundation for success through our home purchase program.
With pride and gratitude, these families have been able to buy homes of their own with affordable mortgages that are frequently less than the rent they were paying previously. These 66 families include 74 adults and 128 children, who have been able to drastically improve their living conditions.

Help build strength and stability with your generous donation.
At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. When a family helps build or improve a place they can call home, they are also building a better community, a better life for themselves.

Ways to Donate
Thank you for your support of Greene County Habitat for Humanity, Inc. Your support allows us to continue our mission to continue to construct and sell affordable homes to hardworking families in our community.
Homes constructed using the Habitat-proven model of "sweat equity" affordability are sold with no-interest mortgages. Those funds are used to further the mission.
One of the most exciting moments in our community is when a Habitat homeowner pays off their mortgage! Habitat has constructed 66 homes and has celebrated the payoff of four mortgages.
Habitat families are hardworking neighbors who "pay it forward!" Your support helps us build more homes as we change lives and work to provide everyone a decent place to live.
