Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots movement in a communal farm in southern Georgia, United States. Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit organization working in nearly 1,400 communities across the US. UU. and in nearly 70 countries. The Habitat homeowners are not mere spectators, but participate in solving their housing. Many work with volunteers, use a credit measure or use other methods. Families and individuals in need of a hand are associated with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place to call home where they can. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve strength, stability and self-sufficiency they need to build a better life for themselves. Through housing, we empower people.
Habitat for Humanity reaches the Dominican Republic in 1986 and since then we have served more than 16,600 Dominican families with decent and safe housing solutions for life; supporting low-income families so that they can be developed and integrated and sustained progress, so that they become agents of their own change and that of their communities.
