As a Christian housing ministry, Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people of all faiths to make ownership of decent, affordable homes a matter of conscience and action.

Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County was founded in 1987; since then, the affiliate has built 60 homes locally.

Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent homes with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat homes are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments come back to the affiliate to help build more homes for more families.

Habitat’s offices are located at 908 West Isabella St., just off Route 50, in Salisbury. Next door is the Habitat ReStore, which sells new and gently used building and home improvement materials, appliances, doors, windows, lighting fixtures, flooring and more.   All items sold at the ReStore are donated and all proceeds benefit Habitat’s mission of providing decent affordable housing for sale to low income families in Wicomico County through no interest loans.
