Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities with God's people in need by building and renovating houses so that there are decent houses in decent communities in which people can live and grow into all that God intended.

Description

Habitat for Humanity selects families who live in substandard or overcrowded housing and whose income is between 30 and 70 percent of our regional median income, placing the focus on families who would have very little chance of becoming home owners without Habitat. Habitat families are selected based on need for housing, ability to pay the mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat to build houses.

The families help build their own homes and those of other Habitat families. They are required to contribute at least 300 hours of "sweat equity" depending on the number of adults in a family. This is time spent helping build houses or volunteering for Habitat in other ways.
