Habitat for Humanity, a Christian non-profit organization, partners with people in your community to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat partners help build their own homes alongside volunteers. With your support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families. Building homes helps generations and also the community. Materials are purchased locally and we teach skills to volunteers. It helps a person to give back to the community. It is a “hand up” not a “hand out.” The partner family agrees to put many hours of “sweat equity” into the building and construction. The home is built with a lot of volunteer hours and donations of money and materials. The family pays affordable monthly payments back to Habitat to cover operating expenses.
