It takes a lot of people, money, and prayer to build a Habitat for Humanity home. With your support, more East Central Ohio families and children can build a bright future on the strong foundation of decent, affordable housing.
We believe in a future that’s built on a strong foundation.
In 1988, we began working locally with a small group of dedicated volunteers and their desire to eliminate poverty housing in our community. Today, we have served over 600 families and have changed the face of many neighborhoods. Through the years, we have maintained our unrelenting determination to offer families strength and stability by offering a hand up, not a hand out – but none of what has been accomplished so far would have been possible without the support we have received from our generous donors and devoted volunteers. We are so thankful for every dollar donated, every ReStore donation and purchase, and every hour of time given. As we look to the future, we remain excited about the opportunity to be a blessing to future homeowners, to work tirelessly with volunteers, and to continue transforming the communities of East Central Ohio.

To me personally, Habitat for Humanity means hard work and progress … hard work from the future homeowner through the courses they take and the hours spent working on their future home right beside the Habitat Crew and other volunteers—and hard work from the volunteers that are there with the goal to help to build a home with a deserving family and strengthen our local communities.
Habitat to me is a future. It’s stability for my kids and a new beginning.
As I reflect on my retirement, I realize one of the best parts about it is that I have had the opportunity to volunteer at Habitat. It’s a great chance for me to give back to God just a small part of all that He has given me over my life.
We are most excited about having a house for our kids to grow up in and being able to say this is our home, we built this from the ground up.
Volunteering with Habitat gives me the opportunity to give back to the community in which I lived and worked, and I truly believe that that is why the other volunteers are also there on a regular basis.
Something that we really thought was far and impossible was having our own home, until we started with Habitat. We have learned so much about homeowners and family—it’s not just about houses.
I love the fact Habitat teaches families how to build and own their own home—the training is excellent and there’s ownership in the program. It’s one thing when someone does everything for you, it’s another when you’ve actually swung the hammer yourself.
It’s such an honor to have been able to go through this program. The friends we have made and the wonderful people we have met have been a blessing.
