Homeownership is a big part of The American Dream. At Knoxville Habitat for Humanity, we are a proud partner with individuals and families who are living in substandard housing conditions who want a safe and comfortable place to call home.
Knoxville Habitat for Humanity reached a double milestone Friday, Nov. 16, raising the walls on its 450th home in Knox County and celebrating the dedication of a home built in honor of country music star Reba McEntire.
In just seven short days from April 14th to the 21st, Knoxville Habitat for Humanity and more than a thousand volunteers will come together to build six houses from the ground up and establish the second phase of Silver Leaf, Habitat for Humanity’s third subdivision in Knox County.

If you’ve ever worked on a KHFH construction site, chances are you’ve met Don Loher, one of our volunteer crew and house leaders who works faithfully with our construction staff to lead the construction activities of our families volunteers. He will be leading a house in the 2012 multi-house blitz build.
Don, who owns D&D Loher Enterprises, Inc., is a business owner and contractor in the Jefferson County and Sevier areas.
With our busy multi-house blitz build this weekend, a little retail therapy may be in order. If so, please join us for our annual pop-up boutique sale on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14 on Gay Street in the former Region's bank building across from Nama and the Regal Rivera movie theater.
The pop-up boutique store features gently used designer and name-brand clothing and accessories as well as furniture.

Within our society and culture, the one constant is . . . change. Like any organization that serves a broad and eclectic audience, Knoxville Habitat for Humanity (KHFH) seeks to provide the highest level of service for its participants. Occasionally, that requires a degree of flexibility in the way we interact with our diverse world, and we attempt to meet those challenges in the best way possible.
Thanks to the following individuals for their generous gifts in memory or in honor of a loved one from December 1, 2011 through March 31, 2012. If you would like to make an honor or memory gift, please visit our secure donation page.

And sightseers we were as we made our way! Whether trekking the Himalaya
