Did you know? Habitat is a nonprofit ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in our community……it does NOT provide free housing. It is NOT a federal government program or transitional housing provider.
Did you know? Habitat for Humanity believes in the American dream of homeownership. By building and selling simple and affordable homes, we can eliminate substandard housing in our community. Our homes are sold at no profit and financed at zero percent interest to qualified partner families.
Did you know? Habitat for Humanity builds houses with families who qualify and demonstrate a willingness to partner. This partnership includes hundreds of “sweat equity” hours that are volunteered through construction on homes and assisting in our ReStore. Families also attend 55 hours of home ownership preparedness and financial literacy training. Upon closing on their homes, their mortgage payments further our mission as we use these funds to serve more families.
Did you know? Habitat work sites are places to build relationships, as well as houses. Habitat’s self-help solution to rid our community of substandard housing resonates with diverse people from varied political, professional, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Habitat invites all individuals to find common ground in using a hammer and sharing the common goal…..that everyone deserves a decent place to live.
It’s a partnership – between Habitat for Humanity, families in need and YOU! We need your support to make it happen!
We build homes and families build lives. Home is where it begins, where we come from and where we grow.
We serve the families in Huntsville and Madison County.
We could give you 1080 reasons, but the most important reason is that we believe everyone deserves a decent place to live.
By choosing a square foot (sf) between 1-1080 and donating that dollar amount, we can build 8 homes! That means we can change the lives of 8 families forever!
You don’t have to choose only one. You can choose as many squares as you feel led. If you have a particular connection to the number you decided to choose, we would love to hear about it. We have been blessed by those that have shared thus far. You can share your story with us in the notes after you have selected your square(s) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
“I chose two squares; square 1077 and square 330, totaling $1407. Perhaps you’re thinking… why? Well, this was the very first address of the house my husband and I shared as newlyweds. We brought home both of our beautiful children from the hospital, to this very same address. When my husband and I later divorced, I became a single mom in this house. Sometime later, I met my new husband and we lived there for the first year of our marriage. As I considered what my donation would be, I realized the only thing that had remained constant in my life, with all that I had been through over the years, was this address. You see, this house at 1407, had not just been a house, but a safe place; it had been a home. So I decided to celebrate my home, 1407, and all the blessings in my life, with the partner families of Habitat for Humanity as they work towards purchasing not just houses, but their homes.”
“God put the scripture, Galatians 5:14, on our hearts as we prayed about what amount we wanted to give to Habitat. It reads, “For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” We couldn’t think of a better way to love our neighbor than to help them fulfill their dreams of home ownership. So, we chose the square 514.”
