Founded in 1986 as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat for Humanity Seattle – King County has served more than 2,000 families in King County through affordable home construction and preservation, beginning with our very first building on the Issaquah Highlands.
Since then, Habitat SKC has brought together thousands of community members each year to become part of the solution to our affordable housing need. Habitat SKC is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, renovating and preserving homes, advocating for fair and just housing policies, and providing training and access to resources to help individuals and families improve their shelter conditions.
From humble roots in 1970s rural Georgia, to meeting housing needs in now over 70 countries, the Habitat story has touched many lives.
