Founded in 1978, Sea Island Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization. Located on Johns Island, ours is the third oldest Habitat affiliate in the world. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes; advocating for fair and just housing policies; and providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. We serve the communities from James Island to Edisto Island, and have constructed over 380 homes in our 45 years of operation.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in safe communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
