What We Do

Welcome to Habitat for Humanity of Michigan, where we're dedicated to building more than houses—we're building homes, hope, and brighter futures. Through direct support and financial counseling, we assist families in securing stable housing and achieving financial independence. Additionally, we work hand-in-hand with Habitat affiliates across the state, providing financial and homebuyer education programs and supporting the construction of energy-efficient, sustainable homes and the preservation of existing ones. Moreover, our deep respect for veterans fuels our specialized housing services, ensuring those who served our country have the safe, affordable homes they deserve.

Home Repair

Repairing and modifying existing housing improves neighborhoods and revitalizes communities. Low-income families already owning a home in need of repair can partner with their local Habitat to get the work performed at a cost they can afford.

Habitat for Humanity of Michigan's corporate and government agency partnerships provide resources that support critical home repair efforts for local Habitats in Michigan, enabling them to offer this vital service to local homeowners.
