Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity (GDM Habitat) creates homeownership opportunities in partnership with hard-working low-income families and the community. GDM Habitat builds new construction homes, undertakes major rehabilitations, and provides services during Rock the Block days (services include: minor repair, exterior beautification, and weatherization). The Habitat ReStore sells new and gently used home improvement materials to the public at discount prices. Material donations are also accepted. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity.

Anyone should come for the opportunity to partner with GDM Habitat to purchase an affordable home. The opportunity to take advantage of services provided through Rock the Block. The opportunity to make a tangible difference during a volunteer day.

By anyone, we mean hard-working low-income individuals or families who are interested in partnering with GDM Habitat to purchase a home. Individuals, groups, associations, organizations who are interested in impacting the greater Des Moines community by helping create affordable homeownership  opportunties and revitalizing neighborhoods.
