Established in Clark County in 1991, Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas is a not-for-profit organization that provides simple, decent, affordable housing with the help of volunteer labor and donated time, materials and funds. Each home is sold at no profit and with a zero-interest mortgage to local working families, who otherwise might be forced to live in substandard housing.
