What we aim to solve New!

Facing a shortage of 9,500+ affordable housing units, more than 1 in 5 Greenville County residents struggle to find housing less than 30% of their household income. With a vision for every resident to have a decent and affordable place to live, Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County is committed to doubling its output over the next five years to enable 300 families to become self-sustainable through affordable homeownership by 2023.

Embarking on the first year of a five year strategic plan, HFHGC has set a target of 15.5% increased production over FY18. HFHGC's plan has identified positions and has begun hiring individuals needed to meet these targets. HFHGC is seeking to build 10 new homes and rehabilitate and weatherize 27 homes in FY19.

HFHGC leverages the collective investments of local donors, corporations, civic partners, and partners in the faith community to fulfill the Habitat mission. Whether securing development parcels from our civic partners in special emphasis neighborhoods or securing private land donations for new home construction, HFHGC is committed to ensuring it secures developable properties in locations our partner families desire to live in. Additionally, HFHGC is building a construction warehouse in order to bulk purchase and store building materials and reduce costs. This warehouse will be a critical asset for our organization to increase our new construction, repair, and weatherization programs and activities.

HFHGC has 48 staff members and continues to hire additional staff in order to fulfill current needs and meet future demand. Since January 2018, HFHGC has hired a Volunteer Coordinator, Development Officer, Development Coordinator, Grant Funding Manager, Fleet Manager, and two Construction Site Supervisors. In addition to hiring talented individuals to help execute the Habitat mission, HFHGC is improving workflow efficiencies through the acquisition of logistics software and online management systems to capture and leverage our existing data.

HFHGC's Management Leadership Team closely monitors the organization's progress through a KPI dashboard which is updated monthly and presented to the Board of Directors. Each team (Development, Family Services, Construction, and ReStore) has various metrics which impact both the financial and operational performance of the organization. Additionally, the 5 year strategic plan outlined team-specific milestones to meet in order to grow in a sustainable manner and achieve the goal of doubling the organization's output by 2023.

HFHGC was founded in 1985 by a group of visionary community volunteers seeking to eliminate substandard housing in Greenville County. Built on the premise of a "hand up, not a hand out", our programs require our clients to be active and accountable participants in their journey to homeownership. With this ambition, HFHGC has been able to forge many partnerships and built over 360 new homes over 30+ years of transformative work. By 2023, HFHGC plans on sustaining an annual pace of 20 new home construction, 28 repair, and 32 home weatherization projects.
