Habitat Greenville is a wonderful organization. I love the Habitat model, where families go through a homeownership preparation program, and participate in building their own home and the homes of others. When you volunteer with Habitat, you know you're having a direct impact on someone's future!

Habitat for Humanity of Greenville continues to strive towards the goal of helping low-income families realize the dream of homeownership. But it's way more than that. Habitat holds the families mortgages in-house at 0%...the families must work hard to earn their home by taking classes and participating in "Sweat Equity" by building their own home, helping to build other Habitat homes and donate their time to other charitable organizations. The investment you make, as a donor, lasts far beyond the trajectory of time that we will see in our lifetime. Your support of Habitat for Humanity helps to break the cycle of poverty by introducing hope into families lives.

Habitat for Humanity of Greenville has been and continues to be a tremendous blessing for me and my family. They have helped us moved from an infested apartment to a owning a new home. It was a process that taught us to value and appreciate what being a homeowner is all about. We are truly grateful for all their support.
