Mission Statement

The mission of Rainbow House, a Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley project, is to develop strong and supportive relationships within the diverse communities in Washtenaw County. We will work together to provide a low-income family with affordable, quality housing. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) community along with our friends and families will finance and construct a home in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley.

Description

In spite of our many differences and our great diversity, we have much in common. Rainbow House will be a visible symbol of our common goal: a Michigan that is home to all of us.

Millions of Americans face a housing crisis. In fact, 5.1 million American families have à  worst-casehousing needs: they are forced to pay more than half their income for housing, endure overcrowded conditions and/or live in houses with severe physical deficiencies. While the number of families in poverty is growing, the number of affordable rental units is shrinking, and most families who qualify for government housing assistance aren'à  t receiving any aid.

Habitat for or Humanity is changing lives. Working in partnership with low-income families to build decent homes they can afford to buy, Habitat helps to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness. By the end of 2005, more than 1 million people worldwide will live in decent, affordable Habitat for Humanity houses.
