working towards a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
That's our vision. That's where it starts. We believe that everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from, should have a decent place to live; a place of their own where they feel safe, where they know their neighbors, where they can afford nutritious food and decent healthcare, where they can save up to send their kids to college, and ultimately where they can build fulfilling, successful lives.
seeking to put god's love into action, we bring people together to build homes, community, and hope.
That's our mission. That was the sentiment of our founder Millard Fuller and that's what we aspire to do. Simple. Decent. Affordable. While every home is unique and varies in layout, size, and number of rooms, these are the features typical of a Habitat home. Habitat for Humanity builds new homes and rehabilitates older homes.
Demonstrate the love of Christ. Focus on shelter. Advocate for affordable housing. Promote dignity and hope. Support sustainable and transformative development.
Those are our principles. Habitat for Humanity partners with people in your community, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
meet the team.
Providing affordable housing takes a lot of work. Here's the crew responsible for making it happen.
