Building Community in North Belmont
Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County is excited to announce the creation of Dixon Village – a neighborhood that will provide homes for Habitat families and entry-level market-rate buyers in the local community!
Housing is not just about shelter. It’s about owning a safe place to call home and building memories. It represents a gateway and an opportunity to build a better future. With the strength and stability that owning an affordable home brings, Habitat families can focus on their lives, their families, and their paths to a brighter future.
Building Strength, Stability, and Self-Reliance Through Shelter
Founded in 1988, Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County (Habitat Gaston) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit and an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a widely respected global brand. We seek to eliminate poverty housing and to advocate for affordable housing as a matter of conscience and action. Habitat Gaston builds simple, decent housing with help from volunteer labor, the “sweat equity” of our partner families, and community investment of money and materials.
