Agency Mission Statement or Description: Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Year established: 1991

Counties/regions serviced: Clark and Floyd counties

Focus areas: Habitat for Humanity is a housing ministry that works in partnership with qualifying families to help them build their own homes. Habitat, through many generous donors and dedicated volunteers, provides the land, materials, and expertise to construct homes. Partner Families build Habitat homes alongside volunteers. When the home is complete, Habitat sells the home to the Partner Family/Homebuyer on a twenty-year, no-interest mortgage. We ensure the monthly mortgage payment is 30% or less of the homebuyer’s gross monthly income. This keeps the house payment affordable for these families.

Impact in community: providing decent, affordable housing to low-income families, housing and financial stability, supporting redevelopment of our neighborhoods with new or rehab houses, and creating community engagement. More than building homes, we build communities, we build hope and we build the opportunity for families to help themselves.

Volunteer Opportunities: volunteers to help construct homes through the year; members for our various committees (e.g. family support, faith engagement, marketing, fundraising) and donations to help defray the costs of construction.

How 1si members can help your organization: talk to your businesses, family and friends to create a build team and schedule a special build day just for you!
