About Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley
Since 1988, Habitat for Humanity of the Rio Grande Valley has been dedicated to building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Working in partnership with God, Habitat changes lives by enabling people who live in substandard housing to become responsible homeowners. With two locations in the Rio Grande Valley, the McAllen ReStore is located at 412 W. Ash Ave., off Business 83 and the Harlingen ReStore is located at 502 N 1st Street. Habitat is responsible for the construction of over 160 homes throughout the Valley. Habitat offers a “hand up” and not a “hand out” to low-income families from the four-county region. Family partners must be hard-working, low-income residents that may not be able to qualify for a traditional mortgage.
