The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to
create home ownership opportunities by
building decent, affordable houses and by
enhancing neighborhoods through
partnerships with homeowners and the
Habitat for Humanity uses a combination
of volunteer labor (from all sorts of
people) and mandatory "Partner
Family" contribution hours to build
the homes. Their trained construction
staff leads groups of enthusiastic people
just like you who want to make a
difference in the lives of others.
The "Partner Family" is
required to contribute 500 hours of sweat
equity by working at the construction
site, in the office, or on one of the
committees. These hours are to be in lieu
of a down payment. And once the Partner
Family has completed their hours, the
home is sold to them at cost. Homeowners
normally pay a 25-30 year interest free
When the Partner Family begins to start
paying back the mortgage, Habitat can
then recycle that money back into future
housing projects. In a sense, each
Habitat homeowner helps to build another
home for a future Habitat family.
Volunteering with Habitat can transform
you in many ways. A volunteer can gain a
skill, form friendships, learn about a
new neighborhood, or simply feel the
satisfaction of making a difference. But
more importantly, each person who
actively supports Habitat's mission
realizes first-hand the importance of a
simple, decent place to live. They, in
turn, can carry the message to others and
help make the idea of affordable housing
a matter of consciousness for everyone.
