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 in partnership with area churches has built seven Habitat homes in Grier Heights, and in Spring 2021, construction will begin on the eighth home.
Approach: Habitat of Humanity of the Charlotte Region builds new homes, rehabs existing and repairs 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.
