Caroline County Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Since 1976, Habitat has built more than 100,000 houses in more than 80 countries, including some 30,000 houses across the United States.

We welcome all people to join us as we build simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with those in need of adequate shelter. 

Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses.  Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.  Houses are sold at no profit. We offer affordable, low or no interest mortgages.

Three factors make Habitat houses affordable to low-income people worldwide:

  1. Homeowners and volunteers build the houses under trained supervision.

  2. Individuals, corporations, faith groups and others provide financial support.

  3. Habitat for Humanity’s work is organized at the local level by more than 1,900 affiliates worldwide. Affiliates coordinate house building and select partner families.

Homeowner families are chosen according to their need; their ability to repay the no-profit, no interest mortgage; and their willingness to work in partnership with Habitat.

Habitat for Humanity does not discriminate according to race, religion or ethnic group.

All Are Welcome

Caroline County 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. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
