The Need

The need for affordable housing in Madison and Limestone County is great. Of the families in our area who make less than $48,000 a year, 42% of them pay 50% or more of their gross income for housing. This is a statistic that needs to change.

When people spend all of their money, time, and energy on their home, it leaves little for education, improvement, peace, or purpose.

The Solution

There are only a few organizations working to solve this problem – Habitat for Humanity of the River Valley is one of the largest and most effective.

Our goal is to continue working to reduce the need for subsidized housing by partnering with families who need help and the community who can help them.

We are all better off when our community has better homes for our families.

Our Impact


Families Served


Home Building

We offer our partner families the opportunity to own a home that is stable and affordable. The homes are not free and homeowners are required to pay a monthly mortgage at 0% interest until they pay off the cost to build the home.

Education & Support

We partner with our clients to ensure that they are receiving the financial and homeownership education and counselling that they need in order to be successful homeowners.


Habitat ReStore is a nonprofit retail center where new and gently used building materials and home furnishings are sold. The ReStore is our solution for turning these donations, from generous and environmentally concerned individuals and businesses, into money to build homes for families.
