Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity began its work in 1976 as a grassroots movement on a community farm in South Georgia, USA. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities, in more than 50 states in the US, and around 70 countries around the world.

The organization arrived in the Dominican Republic in 1986, for 36 years we have served 196,455 families, carrying out 39,289 housing solutions and collaborating with the construction or improvement of their homes through a financial loan tailored to their needs or through the collaboration of solidarity hearts that donate to the cause.

With our help thousands of people have achieved the strength, stability and self-sufficiency they need to build a better life.

Each home is the basis for building a better future.



Everyone deserves a decent place to live.


Call people to build homes, communities and hope and demonstrate God’s love in action.


  1. Demonstrate the love of Jesus.
  2. Focus on shelter.
  3. Advocate for affordable housing.
