About Hanover & King William Habitat for Humanity

In 1990, a group of Hanover citizens wanted to provide safe and affordable housing in Hanover County. In order to accomplish this, they started a local affiliate under Habitat for Humanity International. Known as Hanover Habitat for Humanity for over 30 years, we have been building homes alongside families who pay an affordable mortgage. Habitat’s Critical Repair Program began in 2017 and addresses critical repairs around the home to keep homeowners safe and dry.

In 2021, we expanded to serve the residents of King William County and are now called ‘Hanover and King William Habitat for Humanity.’ With our help and the help of the community, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Hanover and King William Habitat for Humanity is an Equal Opportunity Housing Agency, and an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer.

Our Impact

Open Door Policy

All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with our work.  We accept people to help us regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or other distinctions that often divide people.

In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.

As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
