About Us

By joining together as neighbors, we can change the future of families in need and give their children a fair chance for a life of hope.

“Your Smith County Habitat is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing low income working families the hope and transforming experience of home ownership.”

Smith County Habitat for Humanity offers this dream to those who would otherwise not be able to afford a home of their own. The new home owners help to build the house alongside many dedicated volunteers in the community. Habitat sells the house to the home owner at cost and finances the mortgage at zero interest.

Working Together In Our Community

Habitat provides capital, not charity. It creates a stable environment for children in safe and communal neighborhoods that work and grow together. Local churches, businesses, individuals, foundations and civic organizations work together in our community to make this dream come true.

But that’s not all we do. Your Smith County Habitat makes critical repairs on the homes of low-income seniors, veterans and people with disabilities. Last year, we completed 85 critical repair projects and we’re on the road to completing even more projects this year. Plus, through our A Brush With Kindness program, we paint the exterior of homes, thus revitalizing entire low-income neighborhoods.
