County HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International,
a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. We seek
to eliminate substandard housing. We are committed to helping
local, low-income families finance and construct their own
ultimate goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty
housing from the face of the earth by building safe, decent,
affordable housing. Habitat is not a giveaway program. It
is a partnership in which those who benefit from the program
are involved directly in every aspect of the mission.
to 100% of the labor needed to build a Habitat home is performed
by volunteers, including the future homeowners. They are required
to complete either 300 or 500 hours of "sweat equity"
(depending on whether it is a one-adult or two-adult household)
as part of their partnering with Habitat to purchase a home.
