Mission Statement

Putting faith into action, Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake brings partners together to build decent, affordable homes that change lives, empower families and strengthen communities

Description

Founded in 1982, Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake is a non-profit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry that envisions a world in which every man, woman, and child has a decent place to live. Putting faith into action, we bring people of all backgrounds- racial, ethnic, religious- together to fight regional housing poverty, one family at a time.

We work with volunteers to build homes and renovate houses in Baltimore, Anne-Arundel, and Howard counties. These houses are sold at no profit through interest- free mortgage loans to families with a need for decent housing, an ability to pay, a willingness to partner.

Since our founding, dedicated volunteers, partners, and donors have enabled us to transform 255 properties into safe, decent, and affordable homes. More than 400 family members are currently living in our Habitat homes; of these, at least half are children.
