Our vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live

Sea Island Habitat for Humanity, the third-oldest Habitat for Humanity affiliate in the world, is an independent, nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that has served its community as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International since 1978, and has provided housing solutions for over 320 local families. We thank supporters that have shared our mission to build simple, safe, decent homes for families that need a hand up, not a hand out.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Sea Island Habitat for Humanity

Bartercard Charleston has been so good to us. They have invited Sea Island Habitat to be an honorary member of their barter network of local companies. These companies can trade or "barter" with one another by using a digital currency called Trade Dollars (T$). Well, at their annual holiday event, we were able to raise $3,900 in Trade Dollars, which we can now spend with any of the hundreds of companies who belong to the Bartercard network in Charleston and beyond. This will help us so much with our costs on many projects. Merry Christmas! ... See MoreSee Less

We were busy with volunteers today! 23 girls from NCSY worked tirelessly painting our front room in the ReStore. It was in need of an updated paint job, and they made it happen.

We're excited to have our local Wells Fargo volunteer team at our construction site tomorrow. Not only does Wells Fargo dedicate volunteer hours to our home-building efforts....they also donated every single piece of construction material to build one entire house this year! These team members can truly say that they made it possible for one of our partner families to achieve the dream of becoming homeowners. Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
