Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville provides the life-changing opportunity for people to purchase and own quality, affordable homes. Habitat provides homeownership opportunities for working men and women who are unable to obtain traditional mortgages in five counties: Davidson, Dickson, Wilson, Cheatham and Robertson. The success of our mission is ensured through the generous help of our caring community of donors and volunteers, who help us Build Better Lives.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville provides the life-changing opportunity for low-income families to become homeowners. Habitat homes are built primarily by volunteers and are sponsored by a diverse array of corporations, foundations, churches, civic groups, and individuals, so that more people become informed about the need for more affordable housing. Homeownership stabilizes lives and builds better communities.
Habitat has a proven model of success through its education component and community support. Habitat's mortgage delinquency rate is less than 3%.
As a consecutive 14-year recipient of the ENERGY STAR® Award for Sustained Excellence, Habitat has been nationally recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy for its continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficient construction.
Habitat homeowner Chantelle says, "My income was too low and they (banks) weren't willing to work with me to improve my credit. I needed the help and time to take care of my debts, and I got that at Habitat."

Habitat's homeownership model provides government, faith and corporate sponsors meaningful ways to engage in their community and be a solution in the affordable housing story.
