Building Hope by Building Homes- Steadfastly adhering to a philosophy of a “hand-up, not a hand-out,” Habitat is a powerful engine of collaboration and reciprocity whereby those who qualify – by having a history of steady income, verifiable need and a willingness to work hard – soon become involved in giving help to others. Interest-free mortgage payments go back to Habitat to help future homeowners.
Through this proven and integrity-based strategy of making home ownership a reality, Habitat for Humanity has fundamentally changed lives in 90 countries, all 50 United States, and for more than 350 Partner Families right here in our community.
