Right now, the only home Alexandria knows is her mom’s strong arms.

She doesn’t know those arms are swinging a hammer to give her and her big brother a home. Khristell was struggling to raise her children in East Jefferson County, where she grew up. They were planning to move away, another young family lost from the local community.

Habitat for Humanity is changing all that. Khristell is building her future home alongside Habitat volunteers and preparing to pay an affordable mortgage. She is extremely grateful for the opportunity to build a better life for her family. Your financial support of any amount will help bring strength, stability and independence to local families like Khristell’s.

 DONATE TODAY – together we will bring local families home!

Help Shape Habitat’s Future

Dear Habitat Friends,

We are on the brink of an exciting adventure for Habitat for Humanity of East Jefferson County! Habitat is entering a strategic planning phase of development for our future. We would love for you to be a participant in this critical process. Results from this survey will be combined with information we are gathering from meetings and one-on-one conversations. This will help our Board of Directors and staff as we plan for the next few years of Habitat’s work.
