Why Your Support Matters

When you support Greene County Habitat for Humanity, you support our partner families as they team up with our volunteers to build their own decent, safe, affordable homes in Greene County. 

 

Since 1996, the 63 houses we’ve built represent 63 families who have established a foundation for success through our home purchase program. With pride and gratitude, these families have been able to buy homes of their own with affordable mortgages that are frequently less than the rent they were paying previously. These 63 families include 74 adults and 128 children, who have been able to drastically improve their living conditions.
