Our mission & values are what guides our service in working with the community. After all, our goal is to put Gods love into action and build a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Also, without community, there is no place to build for those in need.
Improving lives is our mission and we do that through building homes for families in need.
We Respect All People
Honoring the inherent dignity of individuals and communities, we treat others the way we ourselves would like to be treated. Utilizing the golden rule provides a space where we can focus on building a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
We value this mutual respect. It brings us together and allows us to focus on building our communities in the local areas.
Everyone at Habitat is here for our mission. Anyone who comes to us, either for help or to volunteer, has earned our respect as we cannot reach our goals in completing our mission without having that basic common ground.

Our results are the image of our passion. Our homes and programs build community and bring people together. Working together to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live is what we do.
