Since 1996, St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity has worked within our community, building decent, affordable homes for those in need. We’ve grown from an “all-volunteer” organization to a community-supported organization in St. Joseph.


Building and revitalizing homes and neighborhoods is visible: building hope while transforming lives is what is felt throughout the community, from our homeowners to all the selfless volunteers. Together, we are able to work side by side with families of low income to make their dreams come true.

St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seek to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes, by advocating for fair and just housing policies, and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.


All Are Welcome Here

St. Joseph Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy. All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views, or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.
