Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami ("Miami Habitat") is an ecumenical Christian ministry whose objective is to build homes and communities in partnership with low-income families within the Greater Miami area.
To provide home ownership opportunities to low income families in all of Miami's communities of need by building and renovating modes homes with family partners and providing them with interest-free loans for the purchase of these homes.
To provide opportunities to all people of conscience to volunteer and to otherwise support the building of homes and communities in partnership with low-income families.
To witness to the Word of God and the love of Jesus Christ for all persons through our words and actions.
To follow Biblical teachings in our attitudes and actions.
To build bridges among all economic and ethnic segments of our community by establishing new relationships, a sense of community and a renewed commitment to "the common good".
To welcome participation from all individuals, groups or organizations that desire to join with Miami Habitat because of their shared concern and compassion for those in need.
To make decent, affordable housing a matter of community conscience.
To be a financially responsible non-profit ministry that raises money from those who share our vision and to spend the money raised with integrity, community accountability, and for the specific purpose intended by the donors.
To select families for home ownership based on their need, willingness to work, character, and ability to repay an interest-free loan in support of the Miami Habitat ministry. Selection is made without consideration of race or creed.
To maintain a mutually beneficial nurturing friendship with each family by ongoing contact and support in the areas of budgeting, financial planning, home maintenance, etc.
