Our History

B/CS Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. B/CS Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Our affiliate began building homes in 1989 on scattered sites throughout Bryan and College Station. In 1998 we started our first subdivision – Miracle Place – a 16 home development. In 2001, construction began on a second 47 home subdivision, Sharon’s Court, which was completed in 2005. Angel’s Gate, a 20-acre, 110-home subdivision adjacent to Sharon’s Court began in early 2006 and is nearing completion. Faith Subdivision on East Martin Luther King Drive was completed in 2014 with 24 homes and a playground. Now in our 27th year, B/CS Habitat for Humanity recently began construction on its 271st home.

B/CS Habitat for Humanity serves families in Bryan and College Station, Texas, who earn between 30%-60% of the median income and are in need of quality affordable housing. Approximately 3,000 families in the area are in the target population.

All are Welcome

B/CS Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
