Our mission

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to eliminate poverty housing in Ireland and around the world and to make decent housing a matter of conscience and action.

One in four people in our world live in poor housing. Families are forced to live in places that are cold and damp, overcrowded or do not have a door that locks. Simple homes save lives. Families are healthier, children do better in school and parents have a chance to earn a stable income.

Every day in 70 countries Habitat for Humanity works beside families to build, renovate or repair their home. Habitat advocates to improve access to affordable shelter and supports funding models that enable families with limited resources make vital improvements to their homes.

In Ireland, Habitat brings people together from across the community to serve the most vulnerable; mobilising hundreds of volunteers as the hearts, hands and voices for its work.
