Habitat for Humanity of Missoula
Helping Missoula families build homes they can afford.
Habitat for Humanity Missoula partners with eligible families in order to build stable homes for those living in substandard housing. We sell homes to partner families at cost through an interest-free mortgage program, with payments structured to stay within each family’s means.
We invite volunteers to help build, assist in the office, serve on committees and help with special projects.
Your donation builds homes, communities and hope.
We work to give a hand UP to Missoula families through the opportunity to construct and purchase a home.
We are now building homes with the Carey family of three, the Bird family of five, and the Young family of two. This year, all three of our homes will be built in East Missoula, bringing much-needed affordable housing to the area.
Stay tuned for progress updates and more information about this year’s families, our 60th, 61st, and 62nd family partners!

The Habitat Restore
Habitat for Humanity of Missoula’s ReStore sells new and gently used furniture, building materials, tools and appliances to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds from sales are used to fund the construction of homes. The ReStore also helps ensure Missoulians have access to affordable materials for maintaining and improving their homes and diverts usable materials from the landfill. Volunteers support ReStore operations both in the store and around Missoula through donation pick-up services.

Volunteer Opportunities in the ReStore
As we love to say here at Habitat – you don’t have to lift a hammer (OR any furniture) to help!
The ReStore needs folks who can volunteer in 3-6 hour shifts to help us assist customers, organize inventory, and keep our store clean. No experience necessary; anyone who enjoys socializing and sorting through home goods is ideal for our team.
We’ll provide PPE and a short orientation, you bring the energy and enthusiasm for helping Missoulians build and care for homes they can afford. To get started, please contact Frankie at 549-8210 or through our volunteer application here.
Racial Justice NOW
June 8, 2020 / A message from our Executive Director, Heather Harp
All of us suffer. Suffering has a purpose as a lifelong lesson in endurance, character-building and hope. However, the magnitude of suffering for people of color is off the charts compared to those of us nestled in white privilege. Yes, we experience poverty, but we do not walk to the corner grocery in fear of being pulled over because of our whiteness nor poorness. We do not fear our sons not returning from a run. We do not fear the police will kneel on our necks. We do not fear a public lynching.
We as Habitat staff — who it must be acknowledged, all speak from a place of privilege as white individuals — are filled with anger and sadness at the killing of fellow American George Floyd (among so many others) and the systemic racism and oppression that prevails across our country. We are empathetic to your cause. We stand with those who lend their voices and presence to raise awareness of any assault on human dignity and also act to eliminate it…read more
