Mission & Values
CONSTRUCTING HOMES. BUILDING HOPE.
Since 1991 we’ve built or renovated over 50 homes in Clark and Floyd Counties. We build homes because they are essential building blocks for families and communities — especially when coupled with strong relationships and healthy neighborhoods.
No matter where we build, we’re a part of the neighborhood, whether it’s building a new house on a block or renovating an existing house. We turn houses into homes. As stated in our mission, “Habitat brings people together”; we work with people everywhere, from all walks of life, to develop communities. We invite you to join us as we continue to build on our success to help make our great community even better.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
What is Habitat For Humanity?
A nonprofit ecumenical Christian housing ministry, Habitat for Humanity builds simple and affordable homes in partnership with those in need of decent housing. Habitat sells houses to qualified families at no profit with zero-interest mortgage loans.
Through volunteer labor and the donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and renovates simple, decent houses for people who make between 30%-80% of the area’s median income. All partner families must be employed and meet credit guidelines in order to qualify. In addition to a closing costs and a monthly mortgage, they are required to invest 250 hours of sweat equity in their home and in the homes of other partner families. Houses are sold at no profit with a zero percent interest, 25 year term loan, with payments at 28% or less of their monthly income.
