Mission and Vision

Our mission is to provide decent, affordable housing to low-income Watauga County residents. We do this by building modest homes with volunteer labor, land and materials that are donated or purchased at reduced cost. Habitat offers zero interest mortgages to the home owners. Homes are sold at no profit. 


Seeking to put God’s love into action, Watauga County Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.


A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Having a Home Matters

Homeownership imparts substantial social and community benefits. It provides families an opportunity to accumulate wealth and build a stable future. Homeownership is the basis for a number of positive social, economic, family, and civic outcomes. It boosts the educational performance of children, lowers crime rates and lessens welfare dependency, induces higher civic and volunteer participation, and improves health care outcomes.
