Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity was founded as a Christian housing organization. To date, we have built over 550,000 homes, affecting change in over 2.5 million lives in over 90 countries around the world. Our mission extends beyond the wood, nails, walls, mortar and paint. Our efforts have built a sense of purpose and dignity in the lives of people who once had no hope.
The Habitat model works because it is designed as a sustainable graduated solution. Families who apply and are selected based on their overall need as well as their ability to pay and willingness to partner by performing sweat equity. Their monthly mortgage payment return to our revolving fund to help other families in need. Sweat equity is an investment a family makes into building a better life and future.
