A Message from Habitat International CEO

Moving words from Jonathan Reckford, longtime CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, whose mission is "seeking to put God's love into action, we bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.""These protests aren’t just about the killing of George Floyd. They’re about Breonna Taylor, who was killed in her own home during a no-knock raid in Kentucky. They’re about Ahmaud Arbery, who was shot dead while jogging in his own neighborhood in Georgia. They’re about Christian Cooper, whose safety was jeopardized simply for asking a white woman to follow posted rules in Central Park. They’re about Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Rodney King and Emmett Till. They are about Klan members in the 1960s burning down Clarence Jordan’s vegetable stand and firing guns into homes of families at Koinonia Farm outside Americus, Georgia.

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.
