To work in partnership with God and volunteers to build modest homes for low-income families who could not otherwise afford to purchase their own homes.

In 22 years Show-Me Central Habitat for Humanity has helped 99 families move into homes of their own. Over 100 children have been able to move into a home their parents purchased.
In 1999, Show-Me Central Habitat for Humanity opened a ReStore at 1906 Monroe Street to sell new and used building materials and appliances. Generous businesses have given us their excess inventory items or new merchandise when the line they carry changed. Homeowners bring in doors, appliances in good condition, and other items when they remodel. Proceeds from the store now pay for almost 2 houses a year. A truly win-win recycling project!
