Our Mission: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland is a non-profit organization that builds communities of new energy efficient homes, with affordable financing. We are an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a global, nonprofit housing organization.
Founded in 1985, we are committed to the development and uplifting of families and communities, not only to the construction of houses. We have built 91 homes in Cumberland county Maine since our founding, and we have donated over $500,000 to help build homes for more than 170 families around the world.
Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
We recently finished our biggest project to-date, a 13-home mixed income neighborhood in Scarborough called Carpenter Court. We anticipate starting construction on new homes in Freeport and South Portland in late 2020 and 2021.
