Mission Statement

We transform families and strengthen communities by partnering with volunteers, the community and qualified families with low incomes, by building decent, affordable housing for long-term home ownership.

Description

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Partnering Families

We serve our clients with dignity, compassion, love and respect.

We allow our clients to define their own family unit without prejudice.

We select families who are hard-working, financially responsible, and who are assets to their communities.

We understand that education and training for our families is essential to successful, long-term home ownership.

Volunteers and Donors

We actively engage our volunteers, recognizing their contribution is essential to our success.

We invest in our volunteers, who are the predominant labor force used to build our homes.

We create opportunities for people to express their support of their community through the physical action of building a neighbor's home.

We are good stewards of our contributed assets by striving to improve our processes and behaving in an ethical and responsible manner.

Homes

We build simple, decent and affordable homes that adequately meet the needs of our families.

We build environmentally responsible and durable homes.

We build attractive homes that blend into the neighborhood for which our families and their neighborhoods can be proud.

Partners

We recognize that to be successful we must cultivate and collaborate with our partners, i.e., municipalities, contractors and other non-profit organizations.
