Our Story

The idea that eventually became Habitat for Humanity first grew from Koinonia Farm, a community farm outside of Americus, Georgia, which was founded by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan. On that farm, Jordan and Habitat’s founders Millard and Linda Fuller developed the concept of “partnership housing.” This concept centered on individuals and families in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build decent, affordable houses. Habitat for Humanity was officially founded in 1976. Then, in 2005, Habitat for Humanity Texas opened its doors to help those who could not afford safe and decent housing, while addressing the systemic issues of these problems. As a state service organization, Habitat Texas is guided by four pillars of service: advocacy, training & technical assistance, resource development, and disaster services. Through each of these pillars, Habitat Texas aims to increase the build capacity of Texas Habitat affiliates.
