Mission Statement

Yakima Valley Partners Habitat for Humanity seeks to affirm the dignity of the family, to promote a sense of community and to respond to the compelling needs of God's people by partnering with others to build affordable housing, to provide nurturing support, and to foster good stewardship throughout the Yakima Valley.

Description

Yakima Valley Partners Habitat for Humanity is a private non-profit, non-denominational Christian ministry that builds homes in partnership with qualified low income families in the Yakima Valley. Habitat for Humanity is a home ownership program in which families purchase homes at no profit through interest-free mortgages we provide.

Yakima Valley Partners Habitat for Humanity does not build homes for families; rather, it builds alongside those who demonstrate need and willingness to partner with Habitat. Homeowner families invest 500 hours of "sweat equity" labor into the houses. Their monthly mortgage goes into a revolving Fund for Humanity to help fund the construction of more houses in the Yakima Valley. Through this approach, Habitat gives partner families a hand up, not a hand out, restoring the dignity that poverty can strip away.

The Yakima Valley ReStore is a fund-raising and stewardship activity of Yakima Valley Partners/Habitat for Humanity. The ReStore accepts donations of new and used building materials and home improvement items and sells them to the public at economical prices. All income from the ReStore goes directly to finance Habitat for Humanity's Christian homebuilding ministry in the Yakima Valley.
