Habitat for Humanity's Mission Statement is to build affordable homes that strengthen families and communities in South Hampton Roads. Habitat SHR has completed 214 homes since 1990 to help low to moderate income families achieve their dreams of home ownership. Habitat homeowners and their families experience a positive, wide-reaching, and permanent impact. Having a quiet place to do homework and a safe neighborhood in which to play greatly benefits children.
