Habitat for Humanity of Denton County is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that in partnership with the community builds affordable housing for hardworking, low- to moderate-income families. We focus on families needing a hand up, rather than a handout. We believe decent shelter is a matter of conscience and action. Our goal is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness.

Habitat Denton has been fortunate to build 107 homes to date since 1994, with the 8-acre Habitat Village underway that will provide up to 35 families in Denton County with affordable housing. This means Habitat has helped 107 families break the cycle of generational poverty and move into the stability and security of affordable homeownership. We invite you to join us as we continue to give local families in Denton County a hand up, rather than a handout.

Habitat for Humanity of Denton County is part of the larger Habitat for Humanity network, which operates in all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Habitat for Humanity of Denton County's work is part of the more than 7.1 million people that Habitat for Humanity served around the world in Fiscal Year 2022.

Mission

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Denton County brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Needs

We are seeking support from YOU, our amazing donors and volunteers, to help us build the "Habitat Village."

Habitat for Humanity of Denton County has purchased 8 acres of vacant land in Southeast Denton with plans to establish the Habitat Village, an affordable housing development with 35 new affordable homes for local families in need. In order to start building these homes, Habitat Denton is raising funds to first establish the infrastructure of the neighborhood, including the streets, sidewalks, utilities, proper drainage requirements, and everything else needed to support a neighborhood of 35 homes.

Located in Southeast Denton between Duncan St. and Hill St. and along Smith St., the Habitat Village will allow Habitat for Humanity of Denton County to have a firm foundation on which to build affordable homes for the next 5-7 years. Reasonable lot prices, availability, and location continue to hamper our mission. Most buildable lots in Denton County themselves cost between $65,000 and $95,000 now, as compared to $5,000 to $15,000 less than 20 years ago. Establishing the Habitat Village on our existing property will allow us to help more families in a more efficient way, leading us toward our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Other subdivisions built to accommodate the growing population of Texas are seldom being built for local, low-income level families. Now more than ever, a permanent, affordable housing solution for these hardworking, low-income families in our community is needed here in Denton - and your support of the Habitat Village creates that solution. As the demand for housing, especially affordable housing, continues to climb, this neighborhood is needed now more than ever.

The majority of our funds are raised by local individuals and organizations, so we are relying on YOUR continued support to carry us forward. Would you consider making a gift to the Habitat Village today?

In just two years, we have raised half of the $2.1 million necessary to excavate, install utilities, and grade foundation pads for home sites on this vacant 8 acres of land. We need your support on North Texas Giving Day 2023 as our local donors continue to help us exceed our goals for the building of the Habitat Village.

Now more than ever, hardworking, low-income families need a decent, affordable place to call home. By supporting the Habitat Village, you can make their dream of homeownership a reality.
