Holston Habitat for Humanity, the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, is a non-profit, ecumenical, Christian housing ministry that partners with individuals and families with limited financial resources to build affordable housing.
The affiliate was founded in 1985 and has provided a housing solution, either through new construction, recycled homes or exterior repairs for over 270 Habitat families in the Tri-Cities region, including over 400 adults and over 600 children.
Holston Habitat for Humanity’s service area includes Sullivan, Washington, and Carter Counties in Tennessee, as well as the city of Bristol, Virginia.
Holston Habitat uses volunteer labor and contributions of money and materials to build affordable houses in partnership with individuals and families with limited financial resources. The houses are sold to approved applicants at no profit and financed with no-interest loans.
Holston Habitat for Humanity is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Many volunteers work on committees, at construction sites and in the Habitat ReStores. Committee volunteers aid in the selection and support process for potential homeowners, locate building sites, recruit volunteers and covenant partners, and oversee construction.
