Mission Statement


Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people from all walks of life to build decent houses for families who otherwise would live in substandard conditions. We believe that affordable, safe housing is a necessary prerequisite for the health and well being of the people and communities we serve.

Description


Our Goals: 1. We will empower deserving families with the opportunity to realize the dream of responsible homeownership. 2. We will provide simple, decent homes in the belief that working families who have a home of their own will contribute to a stronger and safer community. Our Values: We offer a hand-up; not a hand-out. Each Habitat partner family has an interest free mortgage and pays monthly to reduce their principal balance and cover real estate taxes and insurance. Partner families are required to contribute a minimum of 350 hours helping to build their own home and the homes of the other partner families.
