What is Habitat for Humanity?
- A nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry.
- We seek to eliminate substandard housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
- To accomplish these goals, we invite people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need.
How does it work?
- Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner (partner) families.
- Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor (sweat equity) into building their Habitat house and the houses of other Habitat family partners.
- Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with a 0% mortgage that Habitat manages.
- The home owners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to support building still more Habitat houses.
