who we are
Families apply to our Homeownership Program. Families must currently be living in substandard housing, have a steady income, and be willing to partner with Habitat Pittsburgh. Are you interested in homeownership? Learn more about applying.
Sponsors and donors contribute financial resources which allow us to purchase the tools and materials necessary to build or rehabilitate a home. You can be a part of this vital work by donating today.
Houses or empty lots are donated or purchased by Habitat Pittsburgh, materials are gathered and construction begins. Learn more about making a tax-deductible donation, of land, property, or building materials.
Volunteers help build homes alongside families currently in the program and Habitat Pittsburgh construction supervisors. No previous experience or skill is required. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
Future homeowners in the program prepare for homeownership by completing financial literacy classes to help them manage debt and budget for the future. Families also complete 350 hours of work alongside volunteers on their future homes. Learn more about what it takes to own a Habitat Pittsburgh home.
Homes are sold to families through an affordable, 30-year, no-interest mortgage.
The cycle repeats. Homeowner mortgages are invested in future Habitat Pittsburgh homeownership projects, helping even more limited-income families in our community.
