Habitat for Humanity

Habitat Bermuda is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, which was founded in the United States in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. Since its inception, Habitat International has built and renovated more than 400,000 homes with families in need all around the world.


Habitat Bermuda became a registered Bermuda Charity in April 2000, and an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International in June of the same year. Habitat Bermuda was established in response to the need for more adequate, affordable housing in Bermuda.


By partnering with Bermuda businesses and with families in need, Habitat Bermuda is actively addressing and meeting those needs by renovating or expanding substandard or inadequate housing.


More recently Habitat has modified its focus from assisting in large-scale construction and mortgage projects, to another Habitat model, A Brush with Kindness (ABWK). This model is about restoring neighborhoods one home at a time by providing home renovations and refurbishments.


These projects aim to rectify common issues such as leaky roofs, mould, broken windows and doors, and severe electrical or plumbing problems which can lead to insecure and hazardous conditions for families.
