Habitat for Humanity
JUNE MONTHLY MISSION
Habitat for Humanity is a global non-profit housing organization working in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States and 70 countries around the world. Since 1989, Habitat for Humanity has had a presence in Washington County. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Using volunteer workers and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds simple, decent, affordable houses for partner families. Homes are sold to partner families with no profit, zero percent mortgages. The monthly mortgage payments are used to build more Habitat houses. “Partner” means that the qualifying family agrees to work with Habitat by completing 350 – 500 hours of sweat equity in the building of their Habitat home and to attend budgeting and credit counseling workshops.
