What We Do

Our Towns Habitat for Humanity seeks to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. We are an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, serving North Mecklenburg and Iredell counties. We believe that everyone deserves decent, affordable housing. The cause of affordable housing is vital to strong families and communities because it affects so many aspects of our lives—including health, education and financial stability.

Our Towns promotes affordable housing in the North Mecklenburg and Iredell counties through two main programs—new homeownership and critical repairs. Our new homeownership program provides low-income families, who might not otherwise be able to buy a home, a path to homeownership with an affordable mortgage. Families must meet income and residency requirements, commit to homeowner and financial education classes, and serve 400 “sweat equity” hours, which are earned through working on the construction of their own home, volunteering on other build sites, in our ReStores, in the office, etc.

Our critical repair program addresses essential health and safety repair needs for families who already own a home and whose limited income makes it difficult, if not impossible, to afford these essential repairs

A Local Focus with a Global Reach

Our Towns Habitat for Humanity serves North Mecklenburg and Iredell counties, including the towns of Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Mooresville, Troutman and Statesville, with both our homeownership and critical repair programs. Our work in your local neighborhoods is funded through individual donations, corporate sponsorships, faith community donations, private and municipal grants, and sales from our three ReStores, located in Cornelius, Mooresville and Statesville.

Our Towns supports the global mission of Habitat for Humanity International as well, through Habitat’s tithe program. Our affiliate has supported Habitat Guatemala since 1987, committing 10 percent of unrestricted contributions to the work there. In that time, we have contributed more than $2 million (update) to create housing solutions, helping more than 600 Guatemalan families have a decent, affordable place to live.
