Habitat for Humanity Tucson is excited to continue its partnership with local high school technical education programs to teach students construction and build more homes.
Habitat for Humanity’s goal is to build safe, decent, affordable, quality houses for people in need. We rely on donations of money, land, material, and time to construct each home.
Habitat Tucson builds free standing homes and town-house style homes where two units share a wall.
While Habitat Tucson has constructed 1-bedroom to 4-bedroom homes, a standard Habitat house has three bedrooms, one and three-quarters baths and about 1,200 square feet. Refrigerators and stoves are provided in each home by Whirlpool through a national partnership. All homes are electric, not gas, and are built with high standards for energy efficiency.
Habitat Tucson is making plans to construct both 2-story homes as well as multi-story, attached condominums. We are also evolving our commitment to sustainable design and greenbuilding, including passive and active solar design, high R-value design, greywater plumbing, and adherence to such community standards as Pima County’s green program.
Habitat Tucson and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans are partnering again to build another home.
In 2010, we completed our first two homes in Marana and we hope to be building there again in FY 2014!
Women Build is an International Habitat program that encourages women to make a difference by building homes and communities. Women do the majority of the building on these homes!
Habitat for Humanity Tucson has partnered with local builders, engineers and bankers to create the largest non-profit/for-profit, joint venture for affordable housing in the country. It’s called Corazon del Pueblo!
