Our Vision

Our Mission

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

our commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion

At Habitat Charlotte Region, we envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live. That vision calls us to speak out against the housing inequities created in our community and put equity and justice at the center of our work.

This is not an initiative. We strive to be an organization that reflects the community we serve and lifts the diverse voices of our employees, homeowners, volunteers, and donors. We believe in honoring our entire community’s experiences, and it is our commitment to do and be better.

Grounded in this commitment, we have created a council to embed diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging into the consciousness of Habitat Charlotte Region.
