Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life , will develop communities with people in need by building houses, so that there is decent housing in decent communities in which every person can experience God's love and can live and grow into all that God intends.
The vision of the Altavista Area / Campbell County Habitat for Humanity, Inc. affiliate i s to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from Altavista and Campbell County by building safe, decent, and affordable housing.
Altavista Area/Campbell County HFH is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Habitat houses are sold to our partner families at no profit and no interest mortgages. The partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.
