Mission

Bennington County Habitat for Humanity is part of Habitat for Humanity International, a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles. We are dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide. We do this by constructing, rehabilitating, and preserving homes; advocating for fair and just housing policies; and providing access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

Non-proselytizing policy

Habitat for Humanity and its affiliate organizations will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

“I do not want my daughter to suffer from my past financial mistakes.
I want my daughter to grow up in a stable and safe place, and I believe that this will give a chance to plant my roots and begin to grow.”

-Jennifer

What people say

“As I sit here on my front porch on this beautiful spring evening
watching my grandchildren play with the neighborhood kids I realize how lucky we are.
A little more than a year ago we were living in a small two bedroom,
upstairs apartment with no place for kids to play. Over the past year I have seen my grandchildren grow both physically and emotionally into healthier little people.
For the first time in three years everyone is sleeping in their own space.
The security and peace of mind owning our own home has brought can not be described.
We will forever be thankful to Habitat for Humanity for giving us the ability
to have a place to forever call home.”

What people say

The past couple of years have truly shifted how each of us look at our family and more broadly our community.  The sense of security that was removed from our everyday habitats really hit the reset button for us all in what we value most and how best to preserve it. For our local affiliate, it was no different as we navigated the building restrictions…but ultimately, we emerge stronger and with renewed purpose and focus on our mission…. We as an organization are blessed with support from our donors, volunteers and a talented staff. That is never taken for granted. Without a community like ours, our dream of increasing the affordable housing stock in our region would never come to fruition. For that, our Bennington Country Habitat says, “Thank you!”
