Habitat for Humanity San Antonio focuses on uniting people by constructing modest, decent, and affordable homes for hardworking families in need. Operating without interest or profit, they aim to provide a helping hand to those in search of a stable home. Additionally, the Habitat Home Center offers discounted prices on new and gently used residential furniture, decor, building materials, and more to the public. Through their efforts in the San Antonio area, they not only build homes but also foster communities and inspire hope.

What is the estimated time frame from when a family applies to when the new build is move-in ready?

Typically families can expect to move in around 6-9 months, depending on the build schedule, but we build year-round with the majority of our building on Fridays and Saturdays.


Who is eligible for a Habitat home?

Habitat selects Bexar County & Guadalupe County residents who are first-time homebuyers earning 30-80% of the Area Median Income (AMI), and select families who need modest and affordable housing, can pay a 0% interest mortgage, and are eager to partner with Habitat.
