Mission Statement

Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities, and hope. Habitat for Humanity Hartford is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Description

Since our inception in 1989, Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity has built over 250 homes and serviced over 300 partner families in the Greater Hartford Area! We work closely with prospective homeowners within our community to provide affordable homeownership opportunities for hardworking families in need. All of our prospective homeowners must complete a minimum of 150 hours of "sweat equity " and 50 hours of financial literacy training to qualify for our 0% interest mortgage homes.

This is a hand up, not a hand out program! All homeowners will pay a monthly mortgage, as well as a "down payment" on their new home.

Our homes are built with 90% volunteer labor - whether it be on a jobsite, in office, or out in the community, we will always find the best fit for you here at Hartford Habitat!
