Our Towns Habitat was founded in 1988 and is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, an ecumenical Christian ministry. We are one of over 1625 affiliates in the U.S., and we serve families in the towns of Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius, and Huntersville, NC. We were chosen Affiliate of the Year in 2008 by Habitat for Humanity International! Our Towns Habitat partners with hard working families in need of decent, affordable housing, and with local churches, businesses, service groups and individuals.
Our homeowners build and purchase their houses through no-profit, no-interest mortgages while contributing hundreds of hours of sweat equity labor working on their house and the houses of others. Mortgage payments are placed in a revolving Fund for Humanity to finance the construction of even more houses.
In July, 2010 in response to a growing need for repairs and weatherization on existing homes in the four towns, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity began a ReHabitat program.
Our Towns Habitat for Humanity, a non-denominational Christian housing ministry, was founded in Davidson in 1988 after a number of local residents participated in a Jimmy Carter Habitat build in Charlotte and returned to Davidson filled with inspiration to start a local Habitat affiliate.
In 1988, the affiliate was called Davidson Habitat for Humanity, and the focus was building in Davidson and Cornelius. A Mooresville affiliate began in 1991 and was called Mooresville/Lake Norman Habitat for Humanity, which built Habitat homes in Mooresville and Huntersville.
In 1995, Davidson Habitat for Humanity merged with Mooresville/Lake Norman Habitat for Humanity and became Our Towns Habitat for Humanity.
