Habitat for Humanity: Making decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action!
Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and the monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor – sweat equity – into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
Habitat for Humanity has an open – door policy: All who desire to be a part of this work are welcome, regardless of religious preference or background.
Habitat for Humanity has always had a policy of building with people in need regardless of race or religion, and we welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
Habitat for Humanity has built more than 225,000 houses around the world, providing more than one million people in more than 3000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.
Habitat for Humanity has shown that building homes does more than put a roof over someone’s head.
In clean, decent, stable housing:
A family can provide stability for their children.
A family’s sense of dignity and pride grow.
A family’s health, physical safety, and security improve.
A family’s educational and employment prospects increase.
Building Hope, Homes, and Communities!
