About Us

Habitat for Humanity International is a worldwide non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, open to people from all walks of life, with a mission of eliminating poverty housing and making simple, decent, affordable shelter for all people a matter of conscience. Since its inception, over 800,000 homes have been completed in partnership with 4 million Partner Family members in 3,000 communities in 70 countries around the world.

Habitat for Humanity has been accurately described as “a hand-up, not a hand-out.” Habitat purposefully works in partnership WITH deserving families, who also contribute to Habitat in a number of ways. Selected Habitat families not only pay back their no-interest loan, but each adult in the Partner Family must also work on “Sweat Equity” hours, in order to purchase a Habitat home.
