Help a family in need
Join the Hammer Society
Greater Florence Habitat for Humanity has made it simple for you to help your community and the individuals in it by joining the Hammer Society. The Hammer Society offers Florence County residents an easy way to donate to Habitat for Humanity on a monthly basis, giving us the means to build even more homes for those in need.
Pay it forward
We partner with many businesses that have employee giving programs and/or match the contributions given by employees and retirees. With such an arrangement, every dollar you donate to Habitat for Humanity has the potential to be doubled or tripled by your employer’s donation, ensuring that we will be able to help more local families afford safe and decent housing.

Make a commitment to affordable housing
Demonstrate Civic Leadership. Sponsor a Habitat for Humanity Home Build.
Businesses and organizations who partner with us to eliminate poverty housing are the bedrock of strong communities. Being a build sponsor not only provides businesses and organization with highly visible way to showcase their commitment to our community but also provides faith-based organizations with a way to fully fund and build a home for a local family.
In exchange for being a build sponsor we provide signage at the construction site in recognition of your commitment to help a family out of poverty housing, we recognize your organization in our marketing materials, provide team building opportunities at the build site, and invite you to participate in home dedication and other key Habitat events.
Our Build Sponsors Provide:
• Funds: The cost of a home depends on the size and specific needs of the family, but $110,000 is the average in our area.
• Volunteers: Volunteers at least 16 years of age can help build. No experience is necessary!
• Time: Construction typically takes 12-16 weeks. Build sponsors donate their time to help build the home under the skilled supervision of our building contractors.
• Attend: After the house is built, we invite our sponsors to attend the home dedication where our partner family officially receives their new house keys and we all celebrate a job well done!
We Partner With Our Sponsors To:
• Secure the construction site including purchase and preparation of the land
• Provide all building materials, blueprints, permits, etc.
• Provide skilled construction supervision, training and support of your volunteers
• Select and support the Partner Family
• Recognize and publicize home sponsors
• Recruit/provide additional volunteers as needed.
Volunteering on site with Habitat will strengthen your team spirit and morale as members from all levels of your company communicate, cooperate, and work together to get a job done.
Join us for a day of building. Bring the volunteers and financial contribution, and we’ll provide skilled construction supervision, training, tools and safety equipment.
