Thousands of low-income families living in Tuscaloosa and its surrounding areas are in dire need of affordable housing options. These hardworking families often have no choice but to spend 50% or more of their income on housing, often living in dangerous conditions and substandard housing.
A safe and stable home is the foundation on which families build success. Homeownership has many positive effects on families and children; most importantly, homeownership provides low-income families the means to build personal wealth and increase their children's opportunities for success and upward economic mobility. This is why we build homes.
We offer homeownership classes to our qualified applicants, ensuring they have the tools they need to succeed. They invest "sweat equity" into their new home, taking pride and ownership through hours spent pounding nails alongside community volunteers. And finally, move-in day comes, with a long-term 0% interest mortgage, ensuring both that continuing pride and ownership and that it always remains affordable.

But we need your help to make sure that safe, quality, affordable housing is available for everyone! We can't do what we do without generous community support from people like you. There are a number of ways for you to make a difference—anything from a check to coming out and pounding nails for a few hours, from signing up with your company's corporate-matching program to your gently-used household goods.
