Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry working in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.

There are more than 1,300 U.S. Habitat affiliates spread among all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers provide most of the labor, and faithful individual and corporate donors provide the money and materials to build Habitat houses. Habitat’s mission is to eliminate poverty housing from the earth. Habitat has taken its vision of a world with no more shacks to 53 nations.

Our Mission Statement:
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Our Vision:
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Matthew 25:34-40

Then the king will say to those at his right hand, 'Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.' Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?' And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family,a you did it to me.
