Housing prices in Asheville have outrun wages in the past few years, leaving many long-time hard-working residents without an affordable place to live. Your donation helps!
I'm excited to bring students, alumni and staff together on a one week project with Habitat for Humanity's Global Village program! We'll be learning something new, challenging our assumptions, and giving 100% of our efforts in order to help families in the Asheville Area. I have previously led more than 10 short term trips and am excited to have an opportunity to work in my first domestic location! It's going to be a great week and every dollar counts - won't you join us?
Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity has welcomed more than 250 Buncombe County families to safe, decent and affordable houses since 1983. Habitat homes, which are Green Built North Carolina certified, are sold at no-profit to partner families who pay back a no-interest loan. The non-profit also offers a home repair program for low-income homeowners. Visit ashevillehabitat.org for more information.
Global Village is Habitat for Humanity’s international volunteer program. Teams travel to over 40 countries to work alongside communities, build housing solutions, and experience local culture. Our goal is to change the lives of the people we serve, as well as the lives of the volunteers.

About Habitat for Humanity International
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 1,300 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
