Mission Statement


As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Lafayette Habitat for Humanity (LHFH) works in partnership with God and people from all walks of life to develop communities by building simple, affordable homes in partnership with people in need, so that there are decent homes in decent communities in which everyone can experience GodÂ’s love and grow into all that God intends.

Description


Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. HFHI seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. We select our partner families on the basis of need, willingness to partner, and ability to pay. Our families incomes range from 30% to 60% of the area median income. The families, along with volunteers, build the homes. Once the homes are completed the partner family purchases the home at- cost and interest free. The monthly mortgage note then goes back into the program and is "recycled" to help us build more homes for families in need!
