Mission Statement

At Habitat for Humanity of Dane County, we offer a hand up, rather than a hand out. Through our volunteer network, generous donors and sales from our two Habitat ReStores, we’re helping families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance to build a better life through shelter. In Dane County alone, one in eight people lives in poverty, including 16 percent of all Dane County children. Habitat for Humanity’s Vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live. Our Mission: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Our Goal: Habitat for Humanity of Dane County will be a recognized leader, partner and catalyst for affordable housing solutions that positively impact families, communities and the environment. We are guided in everything we do by these fundamental values: Building communities and families Increasing sustainability Building efficiencies through partnerships

Description

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the principle that safe and affordable homeownership empowers people to reach their full potential. Our goal is to help families achieve and maintain sustainable housing. Through volunteer labor and donations of both money and materials, we build affordable homes for families as well as help low-income families make repairs on their current homes.

A home provides stability for families and children, as well as a sense of dignity and pride. Surveys show that children who grow up in a home are healthier, do better in school and will have better job prospects. Stable housing leads to safer, healthier and stronger communities.

Habitat does not give away homes or home repairs. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest their sweat equity into building their Habitat home and the homes of others. Each family must also attend educational courses on home maintenance, landscaping, budgeting and insurance.

The combination of low construction expenses, volunteer labor and a low to no-interest mortgages makes these homes affordable. Including property taxes and insurance, the Habitat homeowner’s monthly mortgage payment is no more than 30 percent of their gross income.
