Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Livingston County Habitat for Humanity was started in 1998. It’s our goal to eliminate substandard housing locally and worldwide 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. Nearly all of the labor needed to build a Habitat home is performed by volunteers, including the future homeowners. They are required to complete up to 300 hours of “sweat equity” as part of their partnership with Habitat to build a home. To date, the Livingston County Habitat for Humanity affiliate has partnered with hardworking families to build and rehabilitate approximately 19 homes in the community.
Livingston County Habitat for Humanity has an open door policy and belief that everyone deserves a decent place to live regardless of religion, race, age, gender, political views, or any other distinction that too often divides people. This means that Habitat welcomes all volunteers and supporters, and will serve all those in need regardless of their background.
Habitat also does not proselytize or offer help on the expressed or implicit condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion.
