We believe that great cities are not made.
They’re built.

Possibilities are everywhere

When people think of Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville, they think about building houses. And they should, since we began in 1985 we have built or renovated over 400 homes in Metro Louisville and Oldham County. But, while building is what we do, the reason we do it is to change lives. We build homes because they are essential building blocks for families and communities; especially when coupled with strong relationships and healthy neighborhoods. Read more

LaToya was already in a “get your act together” mode when her aunt told her about Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville. Her aunt, who had just qualified to enter the Habitat program, encouraged LaToya to go for her dream.

“It was a challenge for me to make the sweat equity hours because of my job, but the Habitat staff helped me out and were flexible,” explains LaToya. “Now my kids have a place to call home. We have great neighbors and my kids feel very safe.”

Once LaToya settled into her home, other aspects of her life began to blossom. At work, she moved up from a teller to her current position as an Assistant Branch Manager at a local bank. She also married and her family expanded with the addition of a stepson. Her family’s future just keeps getting brighter. Read more

There is more to Habitat than just building houses. We are always looking for people and their unique talents. Habitat construction volunteers build alongside families who demonstrate the need and willingness to partner with Habitat. Habitat offers a hand up, not a hand out to families who invest a modest down payment and 400 ‘sweat equity’ hours building their own and their neighbor’s houses. You can volunteer to work on a team and help to build a house truly from the ground up. Get your company involved and join us for a day of team building on a job site or in the construction center. Contact our volunteer coordinator today. Read more

Habitat for Humanity

Constructing homes.
Building hope.

Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville’s efforts are stepping stones for families, as well as building blocks for neighborhoods. Affordable home ownership helps parents build stable homes for their children and Habitat homes are often built on vacant or abandoned property creating much needed property taxes for our community. Our home buyers have modest income, low debt and good credit. They are reliable, persistent, and ready for the privilege and responsibility of home ownership. We build great homes at Habitat, but the reason we do it is to change lives. ‘Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat brings people together to build homes, community, and hope.’
