Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, durable place to live safely, with dignity. We think decent shelter is a need the entire community should take so seriously that they make sure it can be met. We don't give handouts; we give families a hand up.

We are a Christian ministry. Habitat for Humanity puts God's love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Instead of handing out houses, we train future homeowners and build houses with them.
