General Contracting


Habitat’s General Contracting Program helps us combat the affordable housing crisis through partnership. By providing contracting services, like renovating a transitional shelter for homeless veterans, at a lower price point to our strategic partners, we aid in efforts to provide shelter or keep families in their homes, while addressing urban blight. We use the same cost-effective, community-minded model that drives our homebuilding and home repairs to help broaden our reach of impact. By bringing the Habitat model into more communities, we provide an additional revenue stream to fund our work creating affordable homeownership opportunities for more families.

“We are really grateful that we have the ability to do this. If it wasn’t for the house through Habitat, I don’t think this would be possible. The money other people make goes all to rent. Luckily, we have the house, so we do have the ability to do all these things for our kids.”

Lourdes, Habitat Homeowner
