Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity Greater Birmingham is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God's love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. Habitat Birmingham is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and, by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, affordable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
Established in 1987, Habitat Birmingham serves Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, and, Walker Counties in Central Alabama. The organization is dedicated to making quality, affordable housing solutions available to low-income families. Habitat Birmingham is ranked in the top 10 out of more than 1,400 Habitat affiliates in the United States.
Habitat Birmingham has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide.
