There are many ways to donate to Habitat for Humanity. Each opportunity from online donation, planned giving,  gifts of real estate and vehicle donations provide a Habitat Partner Family with safe, decent housing.  We invite you to visit the donation area and learn more about the opportunities available to help local families.



Volunteers are the heart of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton. Habitat of Greater Dayton’s mission of eliminating substandard housing brings together individuals and groups of volunteers from corporate, faith, educational, and community groups to ensure that everyone may live in safe, decent, and affordable housing.



Habitat for Humanity believes that hard-working people should have access to the benefits and stability of home-ownership. That is why, we are committed to partnering with families to build safe, healthy, and affordable homes. Grants, donations of materials and volunteer labor make it possible for us to sell homes to our partner families with a 0% interest mortgage.


Our Mission

Dayton Ohio Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people from all walks of life to develop communities with people in need by building, renovating, and remodeling houses so that there are decent and affordable homes in safe communities where families can live and grow.

Building A Home in Honor of Pope Francis 

Building homes to embody Pope Francis’s ideals of Social Justice and an End to the Cycle of Poverty.

This is a special build that will unify both Catholic and non-Catholic volunteers, and embody the values and popeteachings of Pope Francis. “God shows the poor ‘his first mercy’. This divine preference has consequences for the faith life of all Christians… This is why I want a Church which is poor and for the poor. They have much to teach us,” said Pope Francis in one of his recent encyclicals. This project will recognize and put into practice Pope Francis’ commitment to social justice, while continuing to support Habitat’s mission of developing communities and ending the cycle of poverty in partnership with God.

Groundbreaking:  Friday, August 7, 2015
