Statement of Commitment on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Habitat for Humanity Seattle King County, we build hope for all by tearing down barriers to affordable housing. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is unwavering.

We have a deep love of humanity and embrace all our differences including race, religion, background or identity.

We act to remove systemic barriers to sustainable, affordable homeownership through advocacy and equity by providing education on housing issues and inequities for public policy makers and eliminating systemic inequities in our policies and practices. We empower our homeowners through education.

We bring people together, leveraging our differences to achieve our mission in our workplaces, building sites, stores, and in our homes.

We build communities where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Our support does not stop when a homeowner receives their keys.

We provide hope by eliminating disparities in home ownership.

Statement of Inclusion

Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County has an open-door policy. All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.

In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize.

Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
