Habitat Day of Giving

We all do the WORK. Families make it HOME.


Home is where we all start our day. It is the foundation for achieving strength, stability, and independence.

Since 1985, Habitat Philadelphia has transformed lives by working alongside homeowners to build or repair a place they can call home. We know that Home WORKS for mental and physical health, education and opportunity, and economic equity and generational wealth.

The need for affordable housing is greater than ever, and your support is critical as Habitat Philadelphia continues to grow to meet this incredible need. Join us to help more first-time homeowners achieve their dream, safeguard existing assets for future generations, and revitalize neighborhoods through advocacy and education.

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters, we are updating our one-day fundraising goal to $150,000!

Every dollar raised on Monday, October 2 will be matched 1:1 (up to $75,000), doubling the impact of your gift. This means more critical home repairs, more affordable mortgages, and more families for whom Home WORKS!

Add Habitat Day of Giving to your calendar and share the date with your network, then join us back here on October 2 to reach our goal and realize our vision of a city where everyone has a decent place to live.
