We aim to raise awareness and support for affordable housing around the globe, so that everyone will have a safe, decent home. With your help, we can make a lasting difference in communities around the world.
What we doHabitat for Humanity of St. Augustine/St. Johns County is a non-profit Christian organization that brings families, volunteers and resources together to build simple, decent affordable housing in St. Johns County.
HOW WE DO ITFamilies and individuals in need of decent, affordable housing apply for homeownership with their local Habitat for Humanity. Potential homeowners are selected by a committee and then approved by the board of directors based on four criteria. Homes are built with local donations by community volunteers in partnership with potential homeowners.
Why we do itSt. Johns County has a shortage of affordable housing. Many families and individuals are cost burdened by spending more than 30% of their monthly income on housing. Median priced homes, as well as rentals, in St. Johns County are often out of reach for our workforce. If we want to have a thriving community, we must address the lack of workforce housing.
Home starts with YOU.
Habitat for Humanity operates in more than 70 countries and 1,400 different communities. Locally, we utilize more than 450 volunteers who donate over 5,000 hours per year. Because of the help of people like you, whole neighborhoods are improved and completely transformed. Through this transformation, families achieve the strength, stability and independence to build a better life.VOLUNTEER WITH US
