Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County believes that all people deserve a decent, safe place to lay their heads. We help to provide the dream of first time homeownership to hardworking families in our community, and provide critical home repairs for existing homeowners. Families always pay back the cost to build or repair their homes, Habitat provides the opportunity and helps them to do so affordably. Join us as a volunteer or donate to the cause and help us help families in our Worcester County, MD community!

Habitat for Humanity is an international, non-governmental, nonprofit organization devoted to building simple, decent and affordable housing. We believe everyone deserves a decent and safe place to live.
We hold a variety of events throughout the year to collect donations of furniture, tools, building materials and household items. Each event supports the construction of homes for local families.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Consider giving up just a few hours of your time to learn valuable skills, meet some incredible new people and change the lives of local families forever.
