Who We Are

Since 1998, Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah and its staff have served over 24 families in need of simple decent housing. Through the generous support of countless volunteers, donors, and community partners, we are able to pursue our vision of eliminating poverty housing in Washington County. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we — we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future. By building, renovating, and repairing homes, we can fulfill that vision. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
