For 35 years, Topeka Habitat for Humanity has built strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
In 1984, a group of volunteers with a passion to help low-income individuals achieve homeownership came together to establish the Topeka affiliate and pledged to serve the global mission of Habitat for Humanity International. The organization worked with dedicated volunteers and established partnerships with local churches, non-profit organizations, and hospitals to work toward the vision that every community member has a decent and affordable place to live.
Since our founding, we have built 107 homes and continue to build three to five new homes each year. We also offer four different programs to aid low-income individuals in repairing and rehabilitating their residences.
We celebrate and live our mission each day, and are increasing our impact by offering additional family support services and offering a new tool-lending program to address blight and increase neighborhood pride in Topeka.
This work is not possible without the support of our many hard-working volunteers, generous donors, partner homeowners, local businesses, faith communities, schools, and ReStore patrons.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our mission over the past 35 years!
"A house is to a family what soil is to a plant. A plant needs to be rooted. A family is like that. If a family is not rooted, it will not flourish. But once a family is well-rooted, all kinds of wonderful things will begin to happen.”
