Around the world

Habitat for Humanity builds brighter futures, strong foundations, healthier children and stronger families. Every 24 hours Habitat for Humanity completes 115 homes around the world. The needs of all these families are diverse, but so are the Habitat for Humanity solutions. We build new homes and we repair others. We help those who have been struck by disaster and we partner in international projects to provide communities with sanitation and clean water. No matter what housing solution we provide, the outcomes are the same: a foundation for a better life.

Our Mission

Habitat Invercargill will be the hub from which things will happen, to bring communities and families together to build sustainable homes to live in.

Give help where it's needed most

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Become Volunteer

The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.
