What will you build?

We bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. If you dream of a world where everyone has a simple, decent place to live, this is your opportunity to make a difference.

Get Started

This is about more than a house.

More than building houses, we’re building better lives and strengthening communities. We work hard each day to eliminate poverty housing, and while that’s a (very) big task, it’s a challenge we believe is worth everything we’ve got. Maybe you do, too.

Homes built and preserved in Stark and Carroll Counties so far.


Over twenty-five years ago, our affiliate began with a small group of dedicated volunteers and their desire to eliminate poverty housing in our community. Today, we have served nearly 500 families, and have changed the face of many neighborhoods. Through the years we have maintained our unrelenting determination to end poverty housing by offering a hand up and not a hand out. But it takes all of us.

None of what has been accomplished so far would have been possible without the support we have received from our generous donors and devoted volunteers. We are so thankful for every dollar donated, every ReStore donation and purchase, and every hour of time given. As we look to the future, we remain excited about the opportunity to be a blessing to our partner families, to work tirelessly with volunteers, and to continue transforming the communities we serve.


Investing Locally

Since 1988, we have helped nearly 500 families achieve the dream of becoming homeowners. Over 2,000 individuals live in the homes built and renovated by Habitat for Humanity volunteers and future homeowners in Stark and Carroll Counties. Approximately 1,700 of these individuals are children.

Investing Globally

In 2006, we were honored to become only the seventh affiliate out of 1,700 to reach the $1 million mark in tithing. Ten percent of our unrestricted donations go toward building houses in Ghana, West Africa and Central America.

Considering Impact

Since our first Habitat for Humanity ReStore opened in Canton in 2005, over 3,000 tons of reusable materials have been diverted from landfills through merchandise sales and recycling. Now that we’ve opened our second ReStore in Canton, there are more opportunities to donate, shop, and save items from landfills.

Giving Our All

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties is a leader among U.S. Habitat for Humanity affiliates. We rank as the #1 affiliate in Ohio, and since 1995, we’ve remained in the top thirty Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the nation.

Knowing that this house is mine and I’ll be here permanently means so much to me. It means long-term stability for my family.

Habitat is partnership – partnership between Habitat and families needing homes; partnership between Habitat and volunteers; partnership between volunteers and families; partnership among the volunteers themselves.

This house means everything to us. We are having dinner for our extended family at our new house. It is the first time I have been able to have everyone together at my home.
