In fiscal year 2013, Habitat for Humanity served 124,946 families around the world and reached an amazing milestone of building, repairing or rehabilitating 800,000 homes since being founded in 1976. These achievements wouldn't be possible without the help of supporters, volunteers and donors. If you'd like to get involved with Habitat, you can join my Global Village trip as we travel to Cochabamba, Bolivia to help build two Habitat homes with families in need of simple, decent and affordable shelter.

Take the pledge and get the BUiLD Toolkit.
Around the world, 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing. That’s roughly one of every four people on the planet.
Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 3 million people to secure decent, affordable homes. But the need is vast and growing — and we’re always seeking ways to do more.
BUiLD is a movement to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
The BUiLD campaign helps raise awareness of the global housing need. It also raises funds for our mission to create affordable housing.
Through BUiLD, people from all walks of life can contribute to our mission in ways other than volunteering to construct houses:
