Mission Statement

All God's people deserve a simple, decent place to live. In 1976, Millard Fuller founded Habitat for Humanity with those words. Pittsburgh Habitat for Humanity is one of the over 2,300 affiliates of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit Christian housing ministry in 98 countries, working to eliminate poverty housing from this world. Pittsburgh Habitat works in partnership with 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. This ambitious mission is made manageable by the efforts of tens of thousands of people worldwide; most of whom are volunteers.

Description

Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the future homeowners. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no interest mortgages. Habitat is a hand up not a hand out.
