At Habitat, we believe that everyone deserves a decent place to live. Habitat partners with people throughout the community to build houses, build hope and change lives. We build & renovate simple, decent, affordable houses and sell them for the cost of construction to low-income Anchorage families and individuals.
Habitat homeowners are legal residents who have steady income to pay a mortgage, are willing to partner with the organization to help build their house, have a need for safe, decent affordable housing and earn less than 60% of the median income based on their family size.
Habitat partners simply need a hand-up. They do not want a hand-out.
Habitat partners are mentored in workforce development, home ownership skills and financial management and contribute hundreds of hours of "sweat equity" while they build their own house and their neighbors' houses. We partner with people of any sex, age, race, disability, religion, familial status or national origin.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
When you give to Habitat through PickClickGive, you’re providing the critical funds needed today for the purchase of construction materials to build a house. More importantly, you're providing Habitat Homeowners the opportunity for financial stability for many years to come. With affordable housing, our homeowners are able to put more food on the table, purchase reliable transportation, keep their children in the same neighborhood and schools and even put a little money away for their children's college education. Because we’ve been in business for over 20 years, we’re now seeing the generational impact of our work as the children of some of our early homeowners are able to go to college, further diminishing the cycle of poverty.
Together we are building houses, building hope and changing lives.
