Habitat for Humanity

Building houses, building hopes — Habitat is modeled as a self-help housing program. It is not a give away program, but rather a joint venture in which those who benefit from the housing ministry are involved in the work at various levels. Each homeowner family is required to invest 500 “sweat equity” hours into the construction of their home and other families’ homes. This reduces the cost of the house, increases the pride of ownership among family members, and generates stronger relationships in the community.
