What we aim to solve New!

Affordable housing is becoming increasingly difficult to find in our service area.

Quoted from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle:
"Rents are up after years of near-zero vacancy rates. On the for-sale market, housing prices have rebounded from the Great Recession with a vengeance, rising to a median sale price of $362,000 in the immediate Bozeman area and $333,000 county-wide in 2015, according to the Gallatin Association of Realtors. Back in 2010, the median sale price for a Bozeman-area home was $262,000 — $100,000 less."


These price increases have led to families living in inadequate homes or paying more for their rent than they can afford sustainably. It has also made homeownership unattainable for many hardworking families in our community.

Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley, a registered affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, provides a helping hand-up to families who are ready for homeownership. We build homes and hope for families who form the working backbone of our communities. By partnering with families to build affordable, decent homes, we create stability in the community and opportunities for families to flourish.

Our partner families work alongside volunteer labor to build their houses. By eliminating the cost of labor, we are able to cut the cost of a new home significantly. Additionally, we are able to offer 0% home mortgages. Between the labor savings and the interest savings, we open homeownership opportunities to hardworking families that otherwise would not be able to afford purchasing a home.

Our two very experienced construction supervisors train all volunteers that come to our worksites to give them the tools they need to be competent in construction. We have regular volunteers that we have sponsored to attend state trainings as well. Between the supervisors and regular volunteers, Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley is able to lead families and community volunteers in building affordable housing.

We measure our progress through the number of homes we are able to repair, the number of homes we are able to build and the number of people benefitting from those programs.

Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley built 75 homes throughout Gallatin and Park Counties since 1991 and completed over 20 repair projects since 2010.

We are working on construction for four repair projects and have three more in the pre-construction stages.

We have plans in the works to build two more duplexes in Belgrade as well as a single family home in Livingston and are excited to break ground. We are actively pursuing more opportunities to purchase land to build more homes.
