Since 1990, we have been building affordable housing in Haywood County. As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live, and seek to put God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
News & Events
Richard and Kay Miller, owners of several local businesses, are long-time supporters of Haywood Habitat. They saw their recent restaurant opening of Hazelwood Pharmacy as a chance to raise critical funds to build another Habitat house in Waynesville.
Most days after her shift at HVO in Waynesville, Jackie drives by the construction site to check the progress of her Habitat house. She and her 9-year-old son are antsy with anticipation as they wait for a permanent place to call home.
When Amy sets a goal for herself, she's determined to make it happen no matter the obstacles. She says, "I want to show my kids that no matter what life throws at you, you can always come out of it. I want to show them I'm trying everything I can to be a good mom to them."
Habitat for Humanity is an international, non-governmental, nonprofit organization devoted to building simple, decent and affordable housing. We believe everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to live.
We hold a variety of events throughout the year from build days, to fundraising events, financial education classes, homeowner information sessions, and lots more. Check out our calendar to see what's going on!
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.
