why we build

Imagine a world where everyone has a decent place to live. That is the goal Habitat for Humanity works toward every day -- starting in our own backyard.

Habitat demonstrates the principles on which we were founded to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ by providing the opportunity of affordable homeownership to hardworking families in our community.

We make every effort to promote dignity and hope to the families we serve and ensure their needs are met in a sustainable and transformational way. That is why every Habitat partner familiy must first complete 300 hours of sweat equity working on our construction sites and the ReStore AND successfully pass HomeWorks homebuyer education and financial literacy classes.

But our families' hard work doesn't stop there. Once the keys are passed, homeowners pay an interest-free mortgage back to Habitat.

It is a sustainable program for families seeking to achieve the dream of homeownership. And it's sustainable for Habitat for Humanity because mortgage payments we receive can be invested right back into the community.

It's why we build.
