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

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton 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.

Partner Family Spotlight, Teanika Johnson

Teanika Johnson and her family receive their keys on 11/19/2016

Teanika Johnson is a single mother with one son. She was Johnsonliving in a drug and crime-infested neighborhood, and though she and other tenants complained, nothing was done to help keep them safe. After many years of the same problems, she moved to her present home, though she still has some issues with crumbling walls, bad ceiling leaks and other problems.

Teanika has a 12-year-old son named Treyvon. He is a 7th grader attending school in the DECA program with the University of Dayton. His passion is the study of robotics. He enjoys playing sports, video games, reading, eating healthy and interacting with his friends.

Teanika says she is glad Habitat’s program teaches its future homeowners the skills needed to maintain their homes, and provides opportunities to families who need it the most and push hard to get the work done. The Johnson’s are very excited to celebrate the holidays in their new home.
