Our Mission and Vision

Our mission as a non-profit, Christian ministry, is to bring communities and people together to create and sustain home ownership in Williamson County.
Our vision is a county where everyone has a decent place to live with hope and dignity.

Habitat for Humanity partners with people in our community to help them build or improve a place they can call home.

Neighborhoods with Habitat Homes
  • Decreased crime
  • Increased property values
  • Increased community pride and involvement
Children in Habitat Homes
  • More likely to graduate from college.
  • Less likely to be on welfare
  • Higher earners in adulthood
Families in Habitat Homes

  • Less likely to have substance abuse issues
  • Create equity/wealth in their home

“As a future homeowner going to the build day after day, I worked side by side with a diverse group of neighbors, each with their own experiences and points of view. In spite of our differences, or maybe because of them, bridges were built. What binds us are not superficial labels that we often use to define ourselves, but something deeper and universal: our humanity.”

Karolyn, a Habitat Homeowner
