Mission

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Clarence Jordan and Millard Fuller the founders of Habitat for Humanity often talked about putting our faith into action. They made sure to do just that by gather diverse groups and putting their faith and love into action by coming together to build affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone. Today, Habitat for Humanity continues this belief by not viewing decent housing as a product but as a process of proclaiming God’s love for all.

History

Habitat for Humanity of Nacogdoches otherwise known as HabitatNac, is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. HabitatNac works toward our vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with people and families in need of a decent and affordable homes regardless of race or religion. We do this by building and selling new homes for low to moderate-income families that agree to help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. The principle received from these homes goes into a revolving fund that builds more homes in Nacogdoches County.

HabitatNac is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, which was founded in 1976 in Georgia. Habitat for Humanity International now works in all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries.

Since HabitatNac’s founding in 1994, we have completed the construction of 18 New Construction homes, recycled one home, and have funded the construction of 13 homes internationally through tithing to serve a total of 32 families through shelter.
