Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International has built, renovated, tepaired or improved more than 800,000 quality, affordable homes and has served over 4 million people worldwide.
Habitat for Humanity volunteers, working hand-in-hand with the families they serve, build quality, affordable homes using donations of money and materials. Partner families, as our homebuyers are known, invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity in the construction of their homes. Once completed, they buy their homes, making monthly payments on an interest-free mortgage. Their house payments revolve back into Habitat’s work; a dollar invested in Habitat is a buck that never stops — it just keeps building.
With more than 1,500 U.S. affiliates and 550 international affiliates coordinating Habitat house-building projects in over 3,000 communities around the world, Habitat has attracted millions of volunteers, from U.S. presidents to such celebrities as Cher, Reba McIntire and Oprah, to name a few.
Fort Worth Area Habitat for Humanity, Inc. was founded in 1989 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, serving Fort Worth and Tarrant County. In 2006, the name was changed to Trinity Habitat for Humanity to include the four counties we now serve. Having grown from a handful of dedicated founders into a volunteer corps of thousands, today Trinity Habitat for Humanity is ranked #20 out of 1,571 Habitat affiliates in the nation in new home production.
