The most important people associated with East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity are the families who live in the homes we build.
Since the affiliate was founded in 1992, we have served over 136 families. Habitat builds houses along with families who demonstrate a need for housing, the ability to pay and also a willingness to partner. These homes are sold, not given, to approved homeowner applicants. Moving into and owning a Habitat home improves the quality of life for its residents, not only in their physical surroundings, but also by instilling a sense of pride and responsibility which comes with homeownership.
