Sustaining lives and strengthening families since 1985.
Habitat for Humanity seeks to build lives as well as homes.

Building a Better Future

Habitat for Humanity Cape Area is a small extension of thousands of Habitat for Humanity spread across the nation. It is not a partner, but an independent affiliation establishment, striving to achieve a common greater goal of providing "a decent place to live" for low income families. Since 1985, we've partnered with working families, sponsors, and community members to build affordable, quality homes for those in need. For the past 30 years we have built over 50 homes in the greater Cape Girardeau area; including Cape, Jackson, Perryville, Advance, and Marble Hill.
