Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to helping people in need realize their dreams of homeownership.

Every parent, every person, should have the decent shelter they need to thrive. The families who partner with Habitat for Humanity to build and improve places to call home come from a variety of backgrounds and are selected at a local level. 

Habitat for Humanity of Kanawha & Putnam knows that safe, decent and affordable shelter plays an absolutely critical role in helping families to create a new cycle, one filled with possibilities and progress. Affordable homeownership frees families and fosters the skills and confidence they need to invest in themselves and their communities. The outcomes can be long-lasting and life-changing.

Do you want to learn some homebuilding basics, but you don’t have any construction experience? No problem. We have an experienced construction supervisor on our Charleston job site to teach you what you need to know to help with the home building process.

The Kanawha Valley Board of Realtors donates $1,000 and dozens of volunteers to Habitat for Humanity.
