Love Builds Up
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 been a part of 35 Habitat homes, 10 being in Grier Heights.
Approach: Habitat of Humanity of the Charlotte Region builds new homes, rehabs existing homes, and repairs older, owner-occupied homes that have fallen into a state of critical disrepair. Habitat works in partnership with homeowners, volunteers, and the community at large to achieve its mission of strengthening neighborhoods by providing low-income families with safe, decent, and affordable housing.
