Mission Statement

Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Description

Since 1996, Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County has partnered with churches, businesses, foundations and individuals to provide 55 hard working, low-income St. Charles County families with the opportunity to build, buy and own their own home. Home construction and neighborhood development costs are funded through tax-deductible financial and in-kind contributions from local businesses, churches, foundations, civic organizations and individuals. These contributions, along with the labor of sponsor employees, members or other volunteers, as well as the future homeowner, enable Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County to build and sell homes to families selected to partner with Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County.

Families are selected to partner with Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County on the basis of family income and their demonstrated need for affordable housing. After an extensive qualification process, the families must complete 350 hours of "sweat equity," purchase the home at a "cost of construction" price through a 20-year, interest-free mortgage, and make monthly mortgage, insurance and tax payments totaling $400 - $450. Over 115 children in our community have benefited from the blessings that come from living in a simple, decent, family-owned Habitat for Humanity home.
