We build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter.

At Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio, we build. And we restore. And we tear down. And we take apart. And we repair. Because everyone deserves a decent place to call home.

While the need for decent, affordable housing grows, Habitat has grown to complete projects of all sorts, all to ensure that families and individuals have a safe and comfortable place to call home. So, while we’re known for building new homes, we also do so much more.

Help Habitat build: donate, volunteer, sponsor a home.

We build new homes.

When families open the door to a safe, decent, affordable home, they’re also opening the door to a future full of strength, stability, and self-reliance.

Since 1988, we’ve partnered with thousands of individuals to help them discover the overwhelmingly positive benefits of safe, decent, affordable housing. Through our new construction program, families and individuals complete the construction of a brand new home. It’s affordable shelter that keeps a family safe and healthy while letting them focus more resources on better education, better food, and better healthcare. Building a new home with Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio is like opening the door to a future full of opportunity.

We restore existing homes.

At Habitat for Humanity, we bring new life to existing homes. In the process, we help families and individuals shine a light on their hope for a brighter future.

Most people know Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio as a builder of new homes, but we also bring new life to existing houses through our home preservation program. At Habitat, we know there’s value in rebuilding and restoring structures that have a lot of life left – healthy structures that are already the backbone of healthy communities. That’s why, since 1988, we’ve built and renovated hundreds of homes, impacting thousands of individuals through the power of decent, affordable (and often rehabilitated) housing.

We repair homes with critical issues.

Critical home repair projects provide a long-term sense of safety and security to residents and entire communities.

At Habitat for Humanity, we believe that families shouldn’t have to deal with every day worry about the physical condition or the financial burden of their homes. Critical homes repair partners Habitat with homeowners who struggle to maintain their home’s integrity. Homeowners receive tangible assistance for exterior home repairs that address safety and livability, and in return homeowners repay a 0% interest loan for approved repairs.

We deconstruct properties.

By removing usable materials from structures that are being remodeled or demolished, Habitat for Humanity can generate resources that build new homes with families in need.

Our Habitat Crew volunteers have a keen eye for materials that are reusable, recyclable, resaleable, and scrappable. Our Deconstruction program is an excellent way to remove usable items from structures that are scheduled for renovation or demolition. This FREE service from Habitat helps keep usable materials out of landfills while helping Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio build homes with local families in need.

We tear down blighted properties.

Green space, removing blight, or making room for new construction – through demolition, Habitat helps communities create space for something better.

Rundown structures make an entire community less safe and less attractive to potential residents. Through our demolition program, Habitat for Humanity can partner with a community to improve properties values, improve safety and attractiveness, and make way for new construction, recreation, and development. The goal is creating a beautiful, healthy community that everyone can be proud of and enjoy for years to come.
