Humanity International is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing
ministry. Habitat works in partnership with people in need to build and
renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those
in need, Habitat's partner families, at no profit and with no interest
charged. Partner families invest hundreds of hours of their own labor
sweat equity -- into building their homes and the homes of others.
mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to
build more houses.
1976 by Millard Fuller along with his wife Linda, and headquartered in
Americus, Ga, HFHI's work in the United States is accomplished by
affiliates. Habitat affiliates are independent, nonprofit [501(c)
that are organized by local citizens and operate with local boards and
local volunteers. There are more than 1,600 U.S. affiliates spread
all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Hundreds of thousands of
volunteers provide most of the labor, and faithful individual and
corporate donors provide the money and materials to build Habitat
houses. Habitat's mission is to eliminate poverty housing from the
earth. Habitat has taken its vision of a world with no more shacks to
100 nations. To date, HFHI has completed over 300,000 simple, decent,
affordable houses around the globe.
