By the time we hit our 25th anniversary, Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis had completed 300 homes in St. Louis City and County. Neighborhoods we've built in include: Mark Twain, JeffVanderLou, Walnut Park, Old North St. Louis, The Ville, College Hill, Hamilton Heights, Forest Park Southeast, Hillsdale, Florissant, Wellston, and Meacham Park.
Generally speaking, our homes range from approximately 1200 square feet to 1300 square feet in size. Houses have three or four bedrooms and one or two bathrooms. Habitat homes are designed to blend with the character of the existing community. Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis builds homes in various styles to accommodate the aesthetics of a given block or area. We build one-story ranch or bungalow style homes, one-and-a-half story homes, and two-story homes. Our homes have a brick-front façade, a cement fiber siding façade, or a mixture of both.
