Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope.
Founded in 1985, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland, is committed to the development and uplifting of families and communities, not only to the construction of houses. Geographically, we initially served 11 towns/cities surrounding and including Portland, we now serve the 28 communities in the greater Portland area.
In three decades, we’ve built 76 homes, providing hundreds of people with stable, affordable housing. We have engaged hundreds of business and civic partners, and enlisted the support of thousands of volunteers.
