Seeking to put God’s love into action, Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity (GDM Habitat) brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. GDM Habitat is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every person should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. We are about building with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
In 2020 Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity partnered with the Des Moines community to build hope with 19 partner homebuyer families, giving 78 people, including 39 children, the greatest gift of all – a brighter future that they can make their own. Together we completed 229 home repairs, preservation, and weatherization projects with existing homeowners and in community areas through GDM Habitat’s Rock the Block® program. Since our inception in 1986, we have served more than 2,000 total families.
