Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Come be a part of MPPC’s 33rd Habitat build as we build a for the Aman family in the Grier Heights community. We can’t do this without you!
The Aman family has lived in Charlotte for nearly 15 years. Both Mr. and Mrs. Aman work in the transportation industry. They have one daughter, currently in middle school. They chose a lot in the Grier Heights neighborhood. For them, the schools in the area were the most important thing for their daughter, as she thrives in her academic studies. They also liked that there are other Habitat homes in the neighborhood. The Amans are very excited to see what their family’s future holds in their new Habitat home! We are blessed to be able to assist in the construction of this house and are thrilled the Aman family will make this their home.

Mission: Seek to put God’s love into action and bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Population Served: Employed, low-income families.
History: Habitat for Humanity Charlotte was established in 1983 through the efforts of seven Charlotte churches to strengthen the community by providing low-income families with safe, decent and affordable housing. Since then, more than 1,450 low-income families have been served in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Since 2008, MPPC has built six Habitat homes in Grier Heights, and in Spring 2021, construction will begin on the eighth home.
Approach: Habitat for Humanity of the Charlotte Region builds new homes, rehabs existing and older, owner-occupied homes that have fallen into a state of critical disrepair. Habitat works in partnership with homeowners-in-progress, volunteers and the community at large to achieve its mission of strengthening the community by providing low-income families with safe, decent and affordable housing.
