Emporia Habitat for Humanity has been a part of the Emporia community since 1989.  Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to the building of houses for people in need and to provide a safe environment to live.

We have provided 16 houses for people in the Emporia community and plan on still building more.  We are always looking for volunteers and tend to work evenings and on the weekends until the project is finished. Thanks for visiting our site!
