Help Make it Happen!

  • All proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
  • As a Christian ministry, Habitat works toward this vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of a decent and affordable home.
  • Houses are built with local volunteer labor.
  • The houses are sold to each family at no profit and with no interest.
  • We are grateful for generous community support and ask for your volunteer help!
