Everyone deserves a decent place to live


Habitat for Humanity New Zealand is a not-for-profit organisation that works in partnership with people of goodwill and families in housing need, to eliminate sub-standard housing. 

Habitat for Humanity New Zealand is part of 
Habitat for Humanity, an international not-for-profit which begin in the United States in 1976.

Habitat's mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. Our vision is for a world in which everyone has a decent place to live. We believe in giving whānau a hand up, not a handout. We work in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing to make positive and lasting change. 

We work towards the Habitat mission in New Zealand through our network of Habitat affiliates, each committed to delivering shelter outcomes that improve housing conditions, partner to increase shelter access, and inspire action to end housing poverty. 

Every whānau needs a foundation to build a future. We are proud to serve thousands of whānau across New Zealand, in the Pacific and further abroad every year.
