"For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people's love and concern for each other".
Millard Fuller- Habitat for Humanity International Founder
We believe in a future that's built on a strong foundation.
In 1992, we began working locally with a small group of dedicated staff and their desire to eliminate poverty housing in our community. Today, we have served over 100 families and have changed the face of many neighborhoods. Through the years, we have maintained our unrelenting determination to offer families strength and stability by offering a hand up, not a hand out. And 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 future homeowners, to work tirelessly with volunteers, and to continue transforming the communities of Anchorage, Alaska.

Families all across the United States are paying too high a price to cover the cost of home.
What people say
Zach Archuletta, Volunteer
When I volunteer, I see tangible results. Habitat is strengthening our community and establishing long-lasting friendships.
Barbara Cash, RIM Design LLC
I give to Habitat Anchorage because I believe in affordable housing for our families, particularly in this climate and location where many are remote from family support.
Philip Giorgione, FedEx
Everyone needs a helping hand at some point in their life and giving to Habitat is one of the means to return generosity.
At Habitat for Humanity, we know that a family should never have to spend more than 30% of their income on a home. But consider that even before the coronavirus pandemic, more than 18 million U.S. households were paying half or more of their income on a place to live. Now, as the significant economic impacts of COVID-19 continue to unfold, the number of families struggling to make ends meet is only growing
Join Habitat in making housing affordability a priority in this year’s elections. Through Cost of Home, we are calling on candidates at all levels of government to develop housing plans and educating voters that their vote matters to further our goal of improving home affordability for families across the U.S.
