Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian ministry that builds with people in need regardless of race or religion. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner families. Habitat houses are then sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments go into a Revolving Fund that is used to build or renovate still more Habitat houses.
Habitat for Humanity works in almost 80 countries worldwide. Local affiliates or community groups are supported by national, regional and area offices which provide training, information resources and oversight. In Europe, Middle East and Africa, Habitat works in 32 countries, building and repairing homes, offering microcredit home-improvement loan, improving water and sanitation, working on disaster response and advocating for affordable housing, all with families in need.Website
