Habitat for Humanity homes around the world are built according to the same guiding principles:
- Habitat for Humanity houses are modestly-sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.
- Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. Habitat house designs reflect the local climate and culture.
- The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.
We depend on volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money, materials, services and property to fulfill our mission.
