Habitat for Humanity

 

About Habitat for Humanity

Lack of affordable housing is one of the biggest challenges facing our homeless neighbors in Charlotte.  Habitat Charlotte transforms lives by partnering with families and our communities to create and preserve affordable home ownership solutions, including construction of new homes for qualified families.  Homeowners contribute 300 hours of sweat-equity to Habitat.  Learn more here.

Over 30 years, St. Gabriel Church has built 4 homes and assisted with construction of more than 100 homes.  We support Habitat's commitment to build "strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter".
