Our Towns Habitat for Humanity
Our Towns Habitat for Humanity seeks to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. We are an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, serving North Mecklenburg and Iredell counties. We believe that everyone deserves decent, affordable housing. The cause of affordable housing is vital to strong families and communities because it affects so many aspects of our lives—including health, education and financial stability. Our Towns promotes affordable housing in the Lake Norman and Statesville area through two main programs—new homeownership and critical repairs.
