The Mission: Habitat for Humanity is a global non-profit organization dedicated to eradicate poverty by providing families in need with safe and affordable housing solutions. Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat’s work is anchored on the conviction that safe and affordable housing provides a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty.

Transforming people's lives and our community by creating affordable and decent housing, lifting up one household at a time.
There are many ways, large and small, that people can make a difference. You do NOT need to be skilled as a carpenter. Think of Habitat as a small business that is entirely run by volunteers. We estimate that half of the hours contributed by volunteers are completed by people who never pound a single nail. If you admire Habitat's mission and want to have an impact locally, please contact us.
Consider donating your used car to Habitat. HfHI will handle all the details. If you designate that you want the proceeds to come to our affiliate, the value of your gift will make a difference locally.
Through housing, we help our home buyers to have greater strength, stability, and independence.
