2019 Smithville Build

Join us this Spring

Austin Habitat for Humanity is heading to Smithville, and we need YOU to help us build a home! Join us starting Tuesday, January 29 as we build a home for the Villalobos family in just 3 short weeks. Bring your neighbors, friends, and anyone who wants to give back to a hard-working, deserving family in our community.


Thank you for joining us as we build strong, stable and self-reliant communities!

Join us for the Dedication CELEBRATION!

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd from 3:00 to 4:00 pm

300 Hardeman, Smithville, TX 78957

A donation that is meaningful provides the opportunity for your community to volunteer and engage with the Habitat homeowner on the construction site.

Even though Diana has a stable job as a Family Advocate at Head Start in Bastrop, it is difficult for her to save money to buy a home. She currently lives in an apartment in Elgin, where she moved to after living with her parents and brother’s family in a singlewide home with electrical and roofing problems. She enjoys having her own space, but it still does not meet her needs. Diana is a caretaker at heart – always helping other people in her professional and personal life – and her new home will be a safe, stable home where her parents can safely age-in-place. She also can’t wait to reunite with her dog and have a space for her to run.
