Founded in 1992, Mitchell-Yancey Habitat for Humanity builds homes, community, and hope. Through Habitat homeownership and home repair programs, many adults and children in Mitchell and Yancey counties have achieved the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future. A decent place to call home and an affordable mortgage enables Habitat homeowners to save more, invest in education, pursue opportunities and have greater financial stability.

Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

We currently engage in one home building at a time, with a goal of building two homes a year.

You are welcome at our board meetings held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at Messiah of the Mountains Lutheran Church on Hwy 19E in Micaville, NC. (Due to Covid  19 restrictions, our meetings are currently being held on Zoom.  Contact us if you wish to attend)
