Habitat for Humanity Victoria

Habitat for Humanity Victoria builds safe, decent and affordable homes for Victorian families living in housing stress. We believe in a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Nearly 24,000 people are homeless on any given night in Victoria. Nearly 34,000 people are on the waiting list for social housing. There is a shortage of more than 40,000 affordable homes in Melbourne alone. The rising price of housing and rent increases continue to outstrip wage rises. The result is a crisis in affordable housing in Victoria.

Habitat for Humanity Victoria is setting out to provide more affordable housing and help more families living in housing stress to own a simple, safe, decent and affordable home.

Habitat for Humanity, Victoria builds safe decent and builds homes with help from teams of volunteers, our corporate partners and other supporters. Our Partner families provide at least 500 hours of “sweat equity” to help construct their new home.

We know this works. Habitat for Humanity Victoria has already provided home ownership for 57 disadvantaged families in Victoria. Worldwide, Habitat for Humanity has built more than 1 million homes and is the largest not for profit home builder in the world.

A stable, secure home helps to break the poverty cycle. It also creates improved outcomes for families in the areas of education, employment, health and lifestyle. It also changes lives forever and helps build real hope for our Partner families and future generations.
