Home Ownership

More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves.


Our volunteers work side-by-side with Habitat to build homes and the foundations for families in Horry County.


Your donation, no matter the size, will help families and neighborhoods break the cycle of poverty and build long-term shelter and security.


Our ReStore is a retail store with a great mission. The ReStore generates profits which go directly back to our mission, to provide access to affordable housing for families in need.
