Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County became an affiliate in 1987 and is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization founded and operated on Christian principles. Habitat Hillsborough is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their housing conditions. Habitat Hillsborough also operates two ReStores at 3738 E. Hillsborough Avenue and 11236 W. Hillsborough Avenue, which offer a wide variety of new and used building materials and home goods at discount prices. Habitat Hillsborough has built over 180 homes across the county. In addition, they serve homeowners through their home preservation program.
