Mission Statement

Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization that seeks to strengthen communities by providing homeownership opportunities for low-to-moderate income families. Habitat for Humanity Hartford is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Description

Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity has built over 220 homes in the Greater Hartford region since 1989. We provide homeownership opportunities to families that would not be able to become a homeowner through the conventional mortgage process. All of our homeowners commit to 150 "sweat equity" hours building their own homes and skills confidence. They also complete 50 hours of financial literacy classes and receive a Certificate upon completion of the courses.
