  • The charitable home builder invested $1.2 million in Greenville County in 2013
  • Habitat homeowners paid $142,974 in property taxes
  • 1,541 volunteers contributed 19,000 hours of community service, including many other members of your Home Builders Association

Habitat President and CEO Monroe Free said, “This study shows exactly how much lives have been changes.”  2015 is the 30th anniversary of Habitat for Humanity in Greenville.  Habitat will celebrate 325 homes built so far, with more to come.
