Lines of Business
Austin Habitat has been building affordable homes in Central Texas for over thirty years, but that isn’t all we do!
Austin Habitat for Humanity builds new homes in partnership with qualifying partner families and the community. These homes are sold with an affordable mortgage to provide families the opportunity to be successful, long-term homeowners. This program is not just about owning a house; it’s about having a home, building communities, and providing a platform for success.

Our HUD-approved Housing Counseling Program works with individuals and families to help them gain financial stability. This program fosters financial management skills including repairing credit, reducing debt, adhering to a budget, preventing foreclosure, avoiding predatory lending practices and more.

Austin opened the nation’s first ReStore in 1992 as a non-profit home improvement store to support our affordable housing programs, and a second in San Marcos in 2018. The ReStore sells new and gently used building materials, furniture, appliances, home goods and fixture at a low-cost, while diverting millions of pounds of reusable materials from landfills.

The Home Repair Program fills an important need of alleviating substandard living conditions for homeowners and their families by completing critical home repairs. This program typically serves seniors, veterans and people with disabilities who have limited resources to complete the repairs themselves and allows them to continue to live at home and age in place.

Austin Habitat’s land acquisition team plays a pivotal role in our ability to continue to provide affordable homeownership opportunities. As land prices continue to rise throughout Central Texas, our land acquisition team is constantly on the lookout for new land to purchase. They are responsible for the search, review and oversight of land purchases and development activities for affordable housing. The land acquisition team is also responsible for identifying and directing the application of grant funding and coordinating compliance efforts.
