Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity partners with local individuals, businesses, and community organizations. Your tax-deductible contribution to Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity is a long-term investment in our community, impacting residents in Cedar, Iowa, Johnson, and Washington counties. In addition, we tithe a portion of every dollar you donate to help build homes alongside families living in developing countries.
Each and every day, people partner with Habitat for Humanity to offer families strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Through this partnership, each family has the opportunity to build and purchase their own decent home with an affordable mortgage. When future homeowners are surrounded and supported by determined volunteers and generous donors, a future full of opportunity is built.
I believe purchasing an affordable home is a stabilizing factor for our communities in Southeast Iowa and provides social and financial benefits for persons and families who have purchased a home through Habitat for Humanity."

Over 150 Homes Built
Locally, Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity has constructed and renovated over 150 homes in Cedar, Iowa, Johnson and Washington counties since 1992.
Globally, Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity has donated more than $360,000 to Habitat for Humanity International, enough to build more than 120 decent homes in developing countries around the world.
The gift of time is one of the most valuable donations Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity receives. Each year, thousands of volunteers selflessly put in around 16,000 hours of service on our local build sites, in our ReStore, serving on our Board, on committees, as office interns, hosting fundraising events, providing snacks for volunteers and advocating for affordable housing.
Iowa City ReStore Builds Habitat Homes
Proceeds from sales in the Iowa City ReStore help fund the Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity mission. Since 2005, the Iowa City ReStore has partnered with the community to provide funding for the construction of 10 Habitat homes.
We couldn't do it without hundreds of volunteers like Arden (pictured above).
