Building Houses • Helping Others
We create housing opportunities for families in Puerto Rico and provide a decent and safe home.
We build strength, stability and self-sufficiency through shelter.
Easy, Secure and Instantly
We build homes for Puerto Rican families with limited economic resources on land donated or acquired through monetary donations. Habitat selects families through non-discriminatory criteria and requires each family to contribute with four hundred hours of work that are distributed between the construction of their home and their participation in educational workshops. The selected family pays an interest-free mortgage with no gain for Habitat for a period of twenty-five years. The real cost of housing is subsidized by Habitat through donations in materials, services and / or monetary contributions of individuals and corporations. Habitat is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a global entity with more than 2,000 chapters in the United States and ninety-three additional countries.
Habitat’s primary focus is creating opportunities to own its own housing for low-income families. However, we have designed a pilot program for “Together to Give a Touch of Love”, through which we have carried out minor rehabilitations in Puerto Rico for families who own their own home but do not have the economic resources to keep it in a healthy state.
If you have questions, please contact us.
There are many ways in which you could donate and serve your time to families who need a decent and safe home.
