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.
