Where We Serve

Trinity Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabs affordable homes in Johnson, Parker, Tarrant and Wise Counties.

Overview

Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International has built, renovated, repaired or improved more than 800,000 quality, affordable homes and has served over 4 million people worldwide.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers, working hand-in-hand with the families they serve, build quality, affordable homes using donations of money and materials. Partner families, as our homebuyers are known, invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity in the construction of their homes. Once completed, they buy their homes, making monthly payments on an interest-free mortgage. Their house payments revolve back into Habitat’s work; a dollar invested in Habitat is a buck that never stops — it just keeps building.

With nearly 1,300 U.S. affiliates and 550 international affiliates coordinating Habitat house-building projects in over 3,000 communities around the world, Habitat has attracted millions of volunteers, from U.S. presidents to such celebrities as Cher, Reba McIntire and Oprah, to name a few.

Fort Worth Area Habitat for Humanity, Inc. was founded in 1989 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, serving Fort Worth and Tarrant County. In 2006, the name was changed to Trinity Habitat for Humanity to include the four counties we now serve. Having grown from a handful of dedicated founders into a volunteer corps of thousands, today Trinity Habitat for Humanity is ranked #13 out of 1,293 Habitat affiliates in the nation in new home production and rehab completion.

All are Welcome

Trinity Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize and will not work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat for Humanity will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
