About Us

Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1993, and is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.

We believe that safe and decent shelter should be a fundamental human right. Our goal and mission is to end substandard housing.  People from all walks of life are invited to work together with us to help build and repair houses for those families in need.

Since our founding, Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity has completed 70 houses. Our homeowners include young families with small children, single parents and those with disabilities.

Our homes are built with volunteer labor, tax deductible donations, and proceeds from our Restores. Homeowners invest a substantial amount of time and sweat equity into building their own homes. The house is then sold to the partner family with a no-interest loan. The money collected from the mortgage repayment is then used to help finance the construction of future Habitat homes.

Non-Proselytizing Policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
