We Build Strength, Stability, Self-Reliance, and Shelter

Our Vision

We envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Our Mission

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Mission Principles

We Focus on Shelter

As our means of manifesting God’s love, we create opportunities for all people to live in decent, durable shelter. We put faith into action by helping build, renovate, and preserve homes. We partner with others to accelerate and broaden access to affordable housing as a foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty.

We Advocate for Affordable Housing

In response to the call to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God, we promote decent, affordable housing for all, and we support the global community’s commitment to housing as a basic human right. We will advocate for just and fair housing policy to eliminate the constraints that contribute to poverty housing. And, in all of our work, we will seek to put shelter on hearts and minds in such powerful ways that poverty housing becomes socially, politically, and religiously unacceptable.

We Promote Dignity and Hope

We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships.

We Support Sustainable and Transformational Development

We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic, and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.

We Do Not Proselytize

​Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated 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.
