Do you enjoy taking something old or used and creating something updated and new!! We need you. We have just started a new section in the Upper Cumberlan Habitat ReStore called RePurpose!
We will help you choose items to work on, provide the products to re-work the item, and provide space to work on them. Help us keep items from going to the landfill, give them new life, and help us provide a unique service to our ReStore shoppers. Bring your creativity and join the fun!!
Mission Vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Mission Statement: Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Although we (Habitat for Humanity) are known around the world, volunteering with your local affiliate, supports your own local community. Housing matters to all of us and strengthens local economies.
Since 1995 Upper Cumberland Habitat for Humanity has been helping our neigbors realize The American Dream of home ownership. By combining the support of churches, corporations, local businesses, civic organizations, and individuals UCHFH is able to build a safe, affordable home for much less than the average market price.
The homes are then purchased by a qualifying Habitat Family with an affordable mortgage, with low to no interest. The homeowner not only receives the right to purchase these homes, but also volunteers with Habitat, helps build their own home, and participates in a variety of homeownership classes to learn how to maintain their home. Some of their classes include Financial Peace, Conflict Resolution and how to be a good neighbor, Home Repair, and more. We believe in offering a hand up, a positive way to achieve adequate, affordable shelter that we all deserve.
Contributions to habitat help families support themelves and their families, and in turn, become vested in their community at a brand new level.
