Habitat for Humanity surpassed its 500,000-house milestone during its most recent fiscal year. Since the nonprofit was founded in 1976, its self-help, hand-up model has resulted in rehabbed, repaired or new housing for more than two million people worldwide.
Habitat East King County and Habitat Seattle/South King County is part of this global effort. For more information or to donate, visit
Since 1988, Habitat East King County has built, rehabbed or repaired 111 houses. The East King County service area incorporates the regions east of Lake Washington, including Renton.  The goal of this affiliate is to make it possible for low-income Eastside residents to be able to purchase simple, decent and affordable homes.
The families who will move into these homes will put in 500 hours of their own labor as a down payment toward homeownership.
