Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville builds new, quality, affordable homes for hardworking men and women in a five county area: Davidson, Wilson, Cheatham, Dickson and Robertson counties.

Habitat Homeowners
Future Habitat for Humanity homeowners qualify for Habitat's homeownership program, meet income qualifications, attend education classes and work with their sponsor(s) and volunteers to build their homes. Habitat homes are not free. Habitat homeowners pay an affordable mortgage made possible because of our funding partners.

Habitat relies on government, corporate, faith and individual partnerships to strengthen lives through the opportunity to purchase affordable homes. Homeownership builds thriving communities and makes it possible for people to live in the communities where they work. Since 1985, Habitat of Greater Nashville has built or recycled more than 1,363 homes, nearly 1,000 locally, and served more than 3,429 family members including 2,160 children.

Habitat of Greater Nashville has received numerous awards for neighborhood revitalization, green building practices, and sustainability, earning the 14th consecutive Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR® Award for Sustained Excellence in Affordable Housing.

Social Enterprise | ReStore
Habitat for Humanity helps fund its mission through its social enterprise, the ReStore. The ReStore sells new and gently used office and household items at a fraction of the cost. Habitat of Greater Nashville operates ReStores in Davidson and Dickson counties, with the Wilson ReStore re-opening soon.

Habitat’s homeownership program is one pathway to more empowered, stable and secure financial futures. Currently, 85 cents of every dollar donated to Habitat of Greater Nashville goes toward providing a Habitat family the life-changing opportunity to purchase and own a home.

About Habitat for Humanity International


Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.

Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, in 1976, Habitat for Humanity today operates around the globe and has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide. 

In Tennessee, Habitat for Humanity affiliates generate a total annual economic impact equivalent to more than 1,500 full-time full-year jobs. Habitat’s total annual earnings impact in Tennessee is estimated to be approximately $55.7 million.

Habitat’s Mission statement
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Mission principles
Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.

We undertake our work to demonstrate the love and teachings of Jesus, acting in all ways in accord with the belief that God’s love and grace abound for all, and that we must be “hands and feet” of that love and grace in our world. We believe that, through faith, the miniscule can be multiplied to accomplish the magnificent, and that, in faith, respectful relationships can grow among all people. Focus on shelter.

We have chosen, as our means of manifesting God’s love, to create opportunities for all people to live in decent, durable shelter. We put faith into action by helping to build, renovate or preserve homes, and by partnering with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty. Advocate for affordable housing.

In response to the prophet Micah’s call to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and we support the global community’s commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically and religiously unacceptable. Promote dignity and hope.

We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships. Support sustainable and transformational development.

We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.

Non-proselytizing policy
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations will not proselytize. Nor will HFH work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with HFH. This means that HFH will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
