 Cars for Homes

 Did you know that your vehicle donation can help Habitat for Humanity build homes in partnership with families in your community?  When you donate a car, boat, RV, motorcycle or other vehicle to Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Homes program, you will help your local Habitat for Humanity build and rehabilitate houses with families in need of affordable shelter.  Since the program’s inception more than $16 Million has been raised for the construction of homes across the country.  Sound simple?  Well it is!  Donate online or with a toll-free phone call to 1-877-277-4344 today!

Home Repair Program

Holston Habitat for Humanity is excited to introduce our newest “tool in our toolbox”!  The Holston Habitat for Humanity Home Repair Program provides low-income homeowners with an opportunity to qualify for an affordable, interest-free home repair loan.  Qualifying repairs are limited to the exterior of the home, but may include items such as roofs, porches, siding and ramps.  Persons who are interested in applying to see if they might qualify for a home repair loan through Holston Habitat for Humanity should contact the habitat office at 423-239-7689.
