Our Mission

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.


Our Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.


Our Principles​ ​​

  1. ​Demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.

  2. Focus on shelter.

  3. Advocate for affordable housing.

  4. Promote dignity and hope.

  5. Support sustainable and transformative development.


What We Do

Habitat for Humanity partners with people in our 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 interest-free mortgage. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.


Non-Proselytizing Policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.


Every day, more and more families find themselves in a struggle to keep a decent roof over their heads. Unpredictable rent increases, overcrowded living conditions, damaged or dilapidated structures, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of access to land and affordable financing are just a few of the kinds of housing needs that families face. And those needs lead to instability, uncertainty, stress, and fear.

There is no typical Habitat family. The families who partner with us to build and improve places to call home come from a variety of backgrounds and are selected at a local level. The basis for a family's selection is their level of need for better housing, their willingness to partner with us and work alongside volunteers, and their ability to pay an affordable mortgage.

Habitat homeowners play a hands-on role in eliminating those barriers, beginning with the sweat equity hours they perform. With the help of volunteers, they build the places they will call home. Habitat and the families who partner with us understand that a home is a far-reaching investment. A home is a strong foundation on which the families who partner with Habitat can grow and thrive.
