Around the World


Habitat for Humanity International’s Tithe program allows local affiliates to eliminate poverty housing not only at home, but also abroad. Habitat Chesapeake is proud to contribute to the millions of dollars sent by Habitat affiliates each year to foreign communities in need of decent housing. Since Habitat Chesapeake’s inception in 1982, we have tithed more than $1,150,000, serving more than 360 families internationally.

Local tithing opportunities are available through our recurring gift program. Please visit the Recurring Gifts page for more details.
