HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Turning Faith Into Action
Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with God and people everywhere, from all walks of life , will develop communities with people in need by building houses, so that there is decent housing in decent communities in which every person can experience God's love and can live and grow into all that God intends.
This affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International has been in existence since 1997. We have completed 38 partner homes. Our strategic goal is to partner with two families each year. To date, our partner families include 46 adults and 67 children.
We largely depend on volunteers for our building and promotion. This is necessary to keep our houses affordable. The driving force behind Habitat is our volunteers.
All partner families are carefully selected after a review that includes income, need for housing, credit worthiness, and the willingness to partner by working 300 sweat equity hours towards the construction of their home.
Habitat homes are sold to each family at no profit and financed with affordable, no interest mortgages. The monthly mortgage payments are recycled to build more Habitat homes.
We are a hands-on opportunity for persons in our community who are looking for a mission outreach.
So too, faith by itself if it does not result in action, is dead. James 2:17
