Neighborhood Revitilization

A better place to live, work, and thrive

What is Neighborhood Revitalization?

Each neighborhood and community is unique. Each has its own gifts and dreams for what it can become.

Habitat For Humanity of Greenville County works with residents to respond to community aspirations through partnerships and services with the goal of empowering residents to enhance quality of life and strengthen their communities.

Habitat Greenville has worked to fulfill its mission throughout Greenville County since 1985.

Home Preservation Program

Weatherizations

Our weatherization program is conducted in collaboration with Furman University’s Shi Center for Sustainability’s Community Conservation Corps. Services include weatherstripping, installation of insulation and vapor barriers, and improvements to home safety. The goal of the program is to reduce energy consumption and promote the financial stability of homeowners with low income. The application process is managed by the Community Conservation Corps. For details and a link to the weatherization program application form, visit the CCC website.
