About Habitat for Humanity of North Collin County
North Collin County Habitat for Humanity (NCC Habitat) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles. We put God’s love into action by building homes and communities. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide. We encourage positive relationships throughout the community by advocating for fair housing policies and by providing training to help families improve their shelter conditions.
NCC Habitat was incorporated in 1992. We enable families throughout northern Collin County (Anna, Celina, Farmersville, Frisco, McKinney, Melissa, Princeton, and Prosper) to achieve the dream of home ownership and dignity. With the help of partnerships, NCC Habitat has built over 100 houses. We also have a Home Repair program called “A Brush With Kindness” where we help low income families with exterior repairs including roof, siding, paint and general clean up. We’ve served over 100 families through this program (mostly seniors). Internationally, NCC Habitat has built 44 homes in Mexico, Egypt, Asia Tsunami & Honduras. Habitat also operates a ReStore that is open to the public Tuesday – Saturday. We sell new and gently used building materials and furniture to the public.
