About Us

Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod

Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod has developed over 140  affordable homes on Cape Cod. Local families help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Homes are deed restricted to remain affordable in perpetuity. With the support of Habitat and community contributors, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Please watch this short presentation About Habitat Cape Cod so you will understand more about who we are, how we help and how you can join us. 

Mission Statement:   Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod partners with families in need of an affordable home to build one of their own; fostering stability, self-reliance and a strong sense of community.

We are an ecumenical housing ministry that seeks to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. Partnership is key to our work. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views, or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people, to build houses alongside the future owner. Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod has built homes in all 15 towns on Cape Cod.
