More Info

Help families in Memphis build strength, stability and independence.

Despite Memphis’ rich history and culture, nearly 1 in 3 Memphis residents live below the poverty line, and about 1 in 10 Memphians have an income at 50 percent or below that level. 

Together we can make a difference! 

President and Mrs. Carter will join the people of Memphis and hundreds of volunteers to build and revitalize the Uptown neighborhood just north of Memphis’ historic downtown. Your generous support will ensure the success of this project.

Anchored by the conviction that housing provides a path out of poverty, since 1976 Habitat has helped more than 5 million people through home construction, rehabilitation and repairs and by increasing access to improved shelter through products and services. Habitat also advocates to improve access to decent and affordable shelter and offers a variety of housing support services that enable families with limited means to make needed improvements on their homes as their time and resources allow.

About the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project:

Often referred to as Habitat for Humanity’s “most famous volunteers,” President and Mrs. Carter give a week of their time each year to help Habitat build, renovate or repair homes in order to shed light on the critical role decent housing plays in helping families build strength, stability and independence.  Through the years, Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project has drawn more than 92,260 enthusiastic volunteers who have rolled up their sleeves and done what’s needed to improve access to affordable housing. These selfless volunteers have built, renovated and repaired 3,944 homes in 14 countries since 1984.
