Your donation changes lives and builds communities, for those who need it most.


We strive to continually improve the quality of life for individuals and families.


We provide a “hand up,” not a “hand out.” We build houses at zero profit.


Shopping at the Habitat ReStore provides funding for future housing projects.

Volunteers Welcome


It takes individuals, leaders, and groups like you, who are willing to give a day, a month, or several days a year to help turn a truckload of construction materials into a new home for a deserving family.


Other than construction, we also offer many opportunities for volunteers with various skills to assist within Holston Habitat - from administrative support, working in one of our two ReStore locations, serving on a committee, food prep, photography and design, to event production - our volunteers make our mission possible.

Holston Habitat for Humanity is blessed by the efforts of the many volunteers in our community.
