Your Donations are Vital
Your financial support of Columbus-Lowndes Habitat is essential for building decent, safe, and affordable housing a reality for qualified homebuyers. Your tax-deductible gift helps pay for things like construction materials, appliances and contractor services.
With the average Habitat house costing more than $70,000, your contribution makes a difference! In addition, we keep your donations local. Building materials are purchased from area businesses and we hire local contractors for repairs and work that must be done by licensed professionals.

We believe that everyone has the right to live in a home that’s safe, decent and affordable. We also believe that the best way to achieve this is through partnership. Habitat brings communities together, as homeowners, volunteers, donors and friends join together to make the dream a reality. A Handup, Not a Handout.
Habitat homes are not free. This is not a giveaway program. Homeowners buy their homes through a regular, monthly mortgage. These families work hard, alongside volunteers, to help build their own home. We also teach partner families how to budget and care for their home.
Families are selected for partnership using three criteria: need, ability to pay, and willingness to partner.
We help you help yourself
CLHFH offers a hand up, not a hand out. Families are expected to work alongside other volunteers in planning and building. Potential homeowners may be required to attend financial management classes, and learn how to maintain a home so they will be prepared for ownership.
