Seeking to put God's love into action, Knoxville Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Habitat for Humanity is an independent, nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that partners with people of all beliefs. Knoxville Habitat for Humanity has been an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International since 1985. We build simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with those in need.
Since 1985, Knoxville Habitat for Humanity has sold homes to nearly 500 families in Knox County who:
• Invested 500 hours of “sweat equity” through budget classes, home maintenance and construction programs.
• Built their own home with the help of Habitat friends.
• Pay a combined total of nearly $350,000 a year in local property taxes
• Purchase their homes with 15-30 year, 0% interest mortgages. Their monthly payments go into a revolving fund to help provide for the construction of additional homes.
