What is Habitat for Humanity?
We are thrilled to announce that Habitat has helped more than 29 million people build or improve the place they call home since Habitat's founding in 1976. Habitat improves the housing conditions of people through new home construction, rehabilitation, incremental improvements, repairs or increased access to improved shelter through partnerships with the private sector. In addition, many people now have the potential to improve their housing conditions as a result of Habitat’s advocacy efforts, which changed policies and systems to allow more access to shelter solutions, and because of our provision of information and training in construction, financial management and other housing-related topics.

Habitat for Humanity of Rutland County
An Investment in the Future - Habitat and the home buyers who partner with us understand that a home is far more than a house. Affordable, sufficient, and stable shelter can lead to improved health, greater success at school and more financial stability. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to build a better life today and dream bigger visions for tomorrow. Every child deserves a stable start in a safe and secure home. Your continued support makes that start possible.
As a relatively new affiliate, we are just starting to develop relationships with volunteers and donors that will, in time, enable us to help more people in our community. We are very grateful to the many people and organizations that have gotten behind us.
We currently own three properties in Rutland City and are working to secure the resources we need to build single-family homes on this land.
