Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity University and the Habitat for Humanity International Organizational Learning Department build the organization's capability to deliver on strategy by creating focused and integrated learning opportunities that embed skills as well as the practice of critical reflection.

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

Description

Habitat for Humanity mobilizes local leadership and resources to expand access for all people to decent, affordable shelter. Typically, volunteers and home partners work together through Habitat for Humanity affiliates to build or renovate houses. In this process, Habitat forgoes making a profit on loans through interest, putting value instead on meeting human need.

Long-term housing security for a family--typically homeownership--is the expected result. Payments made by the new home partner go into a local Fund for Humanity to build or renovate more houses, giving home partners the opportunity to give as well as to receive. Habitat home partners are selected on the basis of need and willingness to partner, regardless of race, religion, gender or ethnic background.

Valuing innovation and staying open to the possibility of the Holy Spirit leading into new directions, Habitat for Humanity International welcomes exploring new methods to increase our impact while staying true to our Mission Principles.
