faith in action

Founded on a mission to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity offers faith groups a powerful way to put their faith into action by building homes, communities, and hope.


For over three decades, churches and faith groups of any denomination have given generously, offered prayers and volunteers. 

rooted in faith

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati began with a calling to put faith into action. Inspired by the national Habitat for Humanity movement, a group of local Christians founded the grassroots organization in Cincinnati in 1986. The early Cincinnati Habitat was entirely volunteer run as an outreach program of several churches. As Habitat gained momentum across the country, more churches felt called to join the mission. In Greater Cincinnati, church congregations joined together to form coalitions. These coalitions sponsor and build homes from the ground up. They get to know partner families and celebrate the homes with dedication celebrations. While we are rooted in the Christian tradition, we welcome groups of any faith and spiritual tradition.


For over three decades, faith communities and faith-based organizations have made an incredible impact in our region, funding and building hundreds of homes.

together we can do more

It can be challenging for one congregation to sponsor and complete a Habitat home on their own. However, when several congregations come together, they can make a significant impact on the lack of affordable housing by building homes in partnership with hardworking families. It’s through the process of working side-by-side that we realize we are far more alike than we are different and true community is formed.

A home built on rock.

Habitat homebuyer Tyleah told the unique story of building her home. In order to stabilize the foundation, we had to bring in 10ft of crushed rock. Since receiving the news, Tyleah said, "I've been singing the hymn, On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand."


Tyleah's home in Evanston was built with generous support from Shalom Coalition. 

Be a part of the new downtown faith coalition.

As the landscape of Downtown Cincinnati changes, this group of congregations wants to make sure investment includes homeownership opportunities that are affordable for hard working lower-income residents.

"It's a huge opportunity to have fun together, and at the end of the day when you leave, you can look back and see that something you did is concrete, it's there, and it's going to be there for a long time."
