Building strength, stability and self-reliance.

Knoxville Habitat provides families in need of affordable housing with an opportunity to build and purchase a home. No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own future.

Update: Applications are currently closed for 2024. 

Please note that Knoxville Habitat is a first homebuyer program and does not provide crisis or immediate housing. We are currently only building in Ellen’s Glen subdivision in Strawberry Plains.

Knoxville Habitat understands Knoxville has an urgent and growing need for affordable homeownership, and we hope to grow our capacity to serve even more Knoxville families in the future. We keep a complete record of our calls and voicemails but do not keep a waiting list so that everyone has an equal chance each application round.

The first place we will announce the next round of applications will be here on our website.

If you have further application questions, please contact our Family Services department at here.


Knoxville Habitat provides a hand up, not a handout. Find out more about our homeownership education program and how families work hard to build a brighter and more secure future for generations to come.
